The Economy Is A Copy Of Social Relations

Dr. Michael LaitmanOpinion: (Billionaire investor George Soros, “We are on the verge of an economic collapse which starts, let’s say, in Greece, but it could easily spread. The financial system remains extremely vulnerable.” Europe is in a crisis, centered around the euro and that the authorities are only engaged in buying time, but that time was working against them.

Europe faces a choice to look for solutions at a national or European level. The survival of the euro is “vital for all.” There must be a European solution.

Over the long term the euro was bound to fail unless a political union was also established. While the eurozone had a common central bank, it had failed to set up a central treasury and had no common fiscal policy. “The euro had created divergence, where it had been expected to create convergence,” he said comparing the levels of competitiveness in Spain and Germany.

My comment: The great financier continues to solve problems using the old methods, but they no longer work. Nothing can be rebuilt without changing social relations; adjustments are not going to work.

For some reason, financiers do not see people behind papers, do not realize that the economy is a copy of social relations and that an economic crisis erupts specifically because they need to be changed. Therefore, financial crisis can be solved by social changes only.

  1. I have to agree 100% with this comment. Our current systems of governance do reflect our social relationships–and thus we really should not expect these systems to manage large complex systems (like national and international economies) very well.

    I have been an occasional reader of the Kabbalah movement, getting recommendations from my friend in Argentina. My biggest criticism with Kabbalah is that, although Kabbalah is great for personal development, it seems content that personal development will eventually–when many more of us embrace Kabbalah-type principles–develop into a better system of governance.

    I have to say that I believe that it is these very systems of governance are preventing many people from embracing Kabbalah-type principles, thus keeping the masses in the “dark ages.” In other words, I believe that personal reform and social reform have to work hand-in-hand to be effective for the change many of us desire. The social forces to keep current political systems as they are are very, very strong–and cannot be changed simply by a few thousand more people attending Kabbalah meetings. There must be social action and social purpose to make personal and spiritual development worthwhile.

    In my book, I have outlined the failings of the western democratic model of governance, an alternative system to fix these failings, and a transition process to move from current systems to the new system I have presented. The fact that these new insights and ideas have been totally ignored is a symptom of the social relationships we currently have. Maybe Kabbalah readers might find these ideas interesting.
