in Social

Mark Carney’s piece is right on for me but this particular bit has been on my mind:

[T]o put the market into service of humanity and once again have society’s values drive value.

Has society ever had a say in what has value? I’m not a historian but it seems to me that value is historically defined by those in power. Today that includes businesses. I think we are at a unique time where more of us want the people to decide what has value. Far from a done deal though. Those in power won’t give that up easily.
