More talk on Moral Economy

"Lidia Canha, from the Portuguese association UMAR, an organisation of women working to end gender- based and domestic violence, stressed that the prioritisation of finance capital over social welfare is detrimental to a country, since it breeds a precarious labour environment and effectively dismantles the public service infrastructure. 
In a huge push against these risks, swathes of civil society are striving to inject their perspectives and demands into the G20 process. "

A moral economy stresses the needs of the people in the community.  Our current economy stresses the health of banks and corporations.  Our current system requires sacrificing the social health of a country to save the economic health of banks and corporations.
