Keeping Body and Soul Together

Keeping Body and Soul Together

(p.115) 6 Keeping Body and Soul Together
Economics for Humans

Julie A. Nelson

University of Chicago Press

This chapter draws conclusions for the actions as citizens, workers, parents, employers, and shareholders. Bringing—and keeping—body and soul together is critically important for two hugely important areas of life. An aversion to thinking about money when the topic of discussion is care has resulted to a crisis of resources in the caring sectors of the economy. On the other hand, an aversion to thinking about ethics when the topic is business has led to a crisis of responsibility in commercial life. It is believed that it will be people on the ground, working in business management or doing the work of care, who will be most helpful in breaking down the petrified eighteenth-century image of the economic machine. Additionally, it is recognized that the health of living, vital economies depends on the ethical decision making and the willingness to support relationships of care and respect.

Keywords:   body, soul, money, ethics, business management, care, economic machine, ethical decision making
