In my text chats one of my interlocutors proposed:
“Get someone from ACTON INSTITUTE to make a list of 10 questions that any bishop or priest should be able to answer correctly BEFORE opining about economic justice.”
“Great idea!”, quoth I. “Let’s see what we can come up with! ‘¡Hagan lío!’, after all.”
I put on my thinking cap and spoke with someone who writes about economic issues and came up with the following list.
- What function do prices play in an economy?
- What role does the Federal Reserve play in the American economy?
- What are the three functions of money?
- What is competitive advantage?
- What is the average consumption of GDP by governments in OECD countries?
- In what time period did capitalism first emerge?
- What is moral hazard and how does it shape economic decision-making?
- What percentage of taxes are paid by the specific tax bands in the United States? And, by the way, do you know how long the tax code in the United States is?
- How do you create wealth?
There. Just a few questions. They’ll prompt me to review.
By they way… if you haven’t seen the Poverty Cure series and then Poverty Inc. you are in for an eye-opening experience. These would be great to show to… a lot of people.
And this video just arrived in my box. It seems to be related.
