luke bretherton has written a good reflection on the occupy movement at st pauls
rowan williams piece in the financial times was wise and thoughtful as ever
and jonathan bartley of ekklesia muses on why the danger isn't over
the greed creed at asbojesus is still probably the most insightful of the lot!
the only thought i have to add to the debate is a naive one...
why not just cap salaries all round? does anyone need to earn say more than 200k in a year? set the level at whatever level you like - equivalent to the prime minister's salary maybe (150k)? or 400k if that makes life simpler? that would shift everything. footballers, bankers, investors, etc etc would all be able to earn enough in a year to buy a small house - does anyone need that anyway?! and there would be huge amounts of money to invest in the poor, in employment, in the arts, in charities and non profits and so on. i know it's naive but we have to address the fundamental problem of obscene disparity and greed. why not have a society that values something other than individual 'success' and 'achievment'?!
