Buddhist Economics, Part 2 - Post-Pandemic (The Dharma Toolkit, Episode 34)
A bonus episode with extra material from last episode’s wonderful conversation with Vaddhaka, author of ‘The Buddha On Wall Street’.In part 2 of our discussion about the contribution Buddhism may have to make to all matters economic, we turn to the post-pandemic realities now faced around the world. The times prompt a reconsideration of the “attention economy” and its relationship to social inequality when everyone’s lives are much more centred on the web. And we explore the relationship between the “wellbeing economy” and ideas of economic growth; as well as whether the community-led origins of the UK ‘Welfare State’ might serve as a model for the future.Some fundamental questions are asked and well met: What do we value as a society? What does human nature tend towards? What does the “common weal” look like after COVID-19? Finding throughout the conversation the opportunities for kindness in our dealings with each other – beyond economic and political positions.Featured this weekThe Buddha On Wall Street by Vaddhaka LinnListen to a mini-series of podcasts on The Buddha On Wall StreetUtopia for Realists by Rutger Bregman Humankind by Rutger Bregman***Check out our Dharma Toolkit space for details of all we have on offer to help you make it through the pandemic and stay inspired.Come meditate with us any week day!***Theme music by Ackport!
