The Commodification of Everything

Dorothy Parker said: “If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.” Do you ever get the feeling we’ve taken her advice too literally? That people with money are the only people we do look at? The subject of money is so vast, money itself so insanely powerful, that I’m crippled trying to start this section of the blog. There is too much to say. Too much to worry about. So for now, start with a thought from Arlie Russel Hochcschild on the Sunday New York Times. (The NYT even chose my comment as one of their picks. Nice!)
