Download Hour1 Download Hour2 Economics is usually spoken about as a subcategory of activity within the politics of society, but I would like to suggest that the economics of our society are the politics of our society - in that they create the type of political structures and institutions we have. Whereas it is usually said that we have a market economy, what we in fact have is a market society, a market government. Everything is shaped by that fact, even people's individual personalities and behavior, through the institutions of the society. The persistent social ills, poverty, war, violence, greed, waste, remain because they are intrinsic to the structure of markets, not aberrations within in it.
