There’s pretty clear research to indicate that the old saying is true – once our basic needs are met, having more money doesn’t tend to equate to more happiness. And books like The Spirit Level have shown that the greater the wealth gap between rich and poor, the less happy people tend to be at both ends of the scale.

None the less, accepting an imperfect world and all our human frailties, does the current capitalist system work pretty well, all things considered? Was the recent economic meltdown the sign of a system that’s fundamentally had it’s day, or was it just a temporary blip and we can now get back to business as usual? Or could we create a new social order that’s more responsible, just and humane and that better supports human flourishing?
