But I only heard it once, on the radio a few weeks ago, so I’ll have to paraphrase:
“Up until 50 years ago, it was axiomatic that an economy existed to support a society. Since then our expectations of the relationship between the two have been turned upside down.”
It was on a Radio National morning program, and I was on the station run, so about 7:35am. Did anyone else hear it? I had to go back inside and get the kids off to catch their bus, so I didn’t hear the rest of the program, but does the observation provoke disturbing thoughts in anyone else?
