Money, Love and Virtue

really liked it 4.00  ·  Rating details ·  7 ratings  ·  4 reviews
This sustained reflection on money, love and virtue is remarkable on several counts. These three themes are seldom mentioned in the same breath, least of all by bankers. And, because they seem to come from different worlds, we might imagine they would make uncomfortable bookfellows.

Nevertheless, the author weaves humanity back into the mesh of society, money and economics.

The hardest part about being me is that everything is so integral it is difficult to take a section and make meaning out of it without including the whole. The whole, however, is too complex and needs to be simplified. I have been sitting on a post for three weeks waiting for brilliance to land. It hasn’t landed. I feel compelled however to let out what clarity is here at this moment.
