Economics of Western Culture

Economics of Western Culture

The basis of western culture is based on the pursuit of economic gain. Slavery, colonialism, and racism are tied to the pursuit of money. The pattern is based on the principle getting rid of impediments. Jesus is a prime example after railing against the moneylenders. Professor David Landry of the University of St. Thomas suggests that “the importance of the episode is signaled by the fact that within a week of this incident, Jesus is dead. Matthew, Mark, and Luke agree that this is the event that functioned as the ‘trigger’ for Jesus’ death.”[16]
