The Buddha on Wall Street: What's Wrong with Capitalism and What to Do About it

by Vaddhaka Linn - £9.99  Windhorse Publications (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781909314443 | ISBN 10: 1909314447

After his Enlightenment the Buddha set out to help liberate the individual, and create a society free from suffering. The economic resources now exist to offer a realistic possibility of providing everyone with decent food, shelter, work and leisure, to allow each of us to fulfil our potential as human beings, whilst protecting the environment. What is it in the nature of modern capitalism which prevents that happening? Can Buddhism help us build something better than our current economic system, to reduce suffering and help the individual to freedom?
 
In this thought-provoking work, Vaddhaka Linn explores answers to these questions by examining our economic world from the moral standpoint established by the Buddha.
