About Buddha on Wall Street

'An original, insightful, and provocative evaluation of our economic situation today. If you wonder about the social implications of Buddhist teachings, this is an essential book.' David Loy, author Money, Sex, War, Karma. 'Lays bare the pernicious consequences of corporate capitalism and draws forth from Buddhism suggestions for creating benign alternatives conducive to true human flourishing.' Bhikkhu Bodhi, editor In the Buddha's Words. 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 everyone decent food, shelter, work and leisure, to allow us to fulfil our potential as human beings. What is it in modern capitalism which prevents that? Can Buddhism build something better than our current economic system? Vaddhaka Linn explores these questions by examining our economic world from the moral standpoint of the Buddha.
