Does our society care more about money than people?
"Our country’s problems go deeper than economics, said David Brooks in The New York Times. We’ve had 10 years of economic expansion, and the GDP is currently growing at a robust 3.5 percent a year. Yet many employers can’t find workers with necessary skills, and jobs that provide dignity and middle-class wages are dwindling. Millions of people suffer “a crisis of connection.” In many rural and working-class communities, people are no longer involved in churches and community organizations; they’re less likely to know their neighbors and less likely to get married. “It’s not jobs, jobs, jobs” or better welfare programs that will save us from this ongoing “social catastrophe.” It’s human relationships, and a society that cares about people more than money."
