FriarN Posted January 17, 2015 Report Share Posted January 17, 2015 Buddhist Economics: A way forward for Japan and others "the economics of the unselfish" This thread was triggered by some comments from Morris Berman, in an interview he did with JH Kunstler MP3 : http://traffic.libsyn.com/kunstlercast/KunstlerCast_263.mp3 > http://kunstler.com/podcast/kunstlercast-263-yakking-with-morris-berman/ He wrote a book about Japan, which talks about the "Tokogawa period" from 1600-1850, when Japan had a disciplined period of austerity - that was ended abruptly by Commodore Perry Japan has "something to go back to", a cultural pattern with a subtle and spiritual core to it. He says, the US does not have that... and wonders how the US will fare in the post-capitalist period As JHK says, he sees American culture as "an ongoing 400 year hustle" ====== > Link to Here : http://tinyurl.com/Buddha-Econ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
