Economics and Politics Quotes


Early ecologists soon realised that, since humans are organisms, ecology should include the study of the relationship between humans and the rest of the biosphere. ... We don't often tend to think about the social sciences (history, economics and politics) as subcategories of ecology. But since people are organisms, it is apparent that we must first understand the principles of ecology if we are to make sense of the events in the human world. Richard Heinberg

The materialist theory of history, that all politics and ethics are the expression of economics, is a very simple fallacy indeed. It consists simply of confusing the necessary conditions of life with the normal preoccupations of life, that are quite a different thing. It is like saying that because a man can only walk about on two legs, therefore he never walks about except to buy shoes and stockings. Gilbert K Chesterton

economics limps along with one foot in untested hypotheses and the other in untestable slogans. Joan Robinson

A loving and fierce defense of economics as a science. Robert Krulwich

America's abundance was not created by public sacrifices to the common good, but by the productive genius of free men who pursued their own personal interests and the making of their own private fortunes. Ayn Rand

History shows that where ethics and economics come in conflict, victory is always with economics. B R Ambedkar

The great virtue of a free market system is that it does not care what color people are; it does not care what their religion is; it only cares whether they can produce something you want to buy. It is the most effective system we have discovered to enable people who hate one another to deal with one another and help one another. Milton Friedman

Commerce is a game of skill which everyone cannot play and few can play well. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart. Gratitude arises in that in-between space where the inner and outer worlds meet and touch and encompass each other. Authentic spirituality, genuine politics, and good economics arise from a spirit of radical gratitude. Sarah Ban Breathnach

I got politics and economics moving and then others took over. Lech Walesa

A wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities. Thomas Jefferson

The biblical lifestyle is always a witness of resistance to the status quo in politics, economics, and all society. It is a witness of resurrection from death. Paradoxically, those who embark on the biblical witness constantly risk death - through execution, exile, imprisonment, persecution, defamation, or harassment - at the behest of the rulers of this age. Yet those who do not resist the rulers of the present darkness are consigned to a moral death, the death of their humanness. That, of all the ways of dying, is the most ignominious. William Stringfellow

I suspected economics was irredeemable as a policy tool for citizens groups. I saw economics lead its practitioners and citizens alike into a form of brain-damaging indoctrination. Hazel Henderson

As the science of economics...exploded the fallacies of every brand of utopianism, it was outlawed and stigmatized as unscientific. Ludwig Von Mises

Reflecting an amalgam of economics, monetary, and psychological factors, the stock market represents possibly the most subtly intricate game invented by man. Richard Arnold Epstein

Understanding economics can help you make better decisions and lead a happier life. Tyler Cowen

Economics, we learn in the history of thought, only became a science by escaping from the casuistry and moralizing of medieval thought. Kenneth E. Boulding

Society needs to see science not as a luxury of funding but as a fundamental activity that drives enlightenment, economics, and security. Neil Degrasse Tyson

It's the economics, that's why opera is not dying but gets more and more difficult to put on. Christoph Waltz

I think a lot of creative people have no sense of numbers and economics. Garry Marshall
