Balancing the interests of money, power and the common good


Date June 2015
Participants Maurice Glasman


Maurice Galsman reflects on the relationship between money, power, and the common good. He suggests that these are difficult to balance, since money usually dominates and creates a concentration of power. He also describes the term “commodification,” where something that is not produced for sale is turned into a commodity with a price, such as nature and the human body.
