<http://bit.ly/20AGb1v> 'Credo': economics is a belief system - and we are ruled by fundamentalists Paul Mobbs, The Ecologist, 6th November 2015 Economics is much more than the study of money, writes Paul Mobbs. It is a belief system, and in its 'mainstream' incarnation, one that serves a very useful purpose - for those that reap the benefits. But as Brian Davey shows in his insightful new book, it's letting the rest of us down: failing to deliver human wellbeing, while driving ecological calamity. <snip> The book: 'Credo: Economic Beliefs in a World in Crisis' is written by Brian Davey and published by Feasta, 2015. ISBN 9780-9540-5103-7. £20. For a fully referenced version of this article see -- <http://www.fraw.org.uk/mei/musings/2015/20151103-credo_review.html> --

"We are not for names, nor men, nor titles of Government, nor are we for this party nor against the other but we are for justice and mercy and truth and peace and true freedom, that these may be exalted in our nation, and that goodness, righteousness, meekness, temperance, peace and unity with God, and with one another, that these things may abound."
