Norman Solomon believed that the economy was in need of economic reform and provided religious-based solutions. Solomon’s and the Jewish views of the global economy were able to successfully improve areas that needed improvement. As told by Solomon, inequalities can be noted as being an outcome of globalization today is normally seen as current in 2 groupings, one ‘less extra horrible’ than the inverse. To reduce these inequalities, Solomon proposed the following solutions: End individual separation, put assets into planning, improving the cost code.
The overexploitation of land, money, and people are problems addressed in this chapter. In the past, wealth was desirable because it allowed a person to do God’s work. Even with wealth, people were told to live a modest life and help those in need. Jubilee and Sabbatical allowed intermittently broke the cycle of inequality. Without a moral and ethical code to prevent the exploitation of people and land, inequality is inevitable. Solomon says that lack of redistribution of wealth aids in putting and keeping people in poverty. In order to combat this we must start with teaching technical skills to ensure that work can be found. We must also develop a moral and ethical teaching to emphasize the importance of honesty and responsibility. We, as children of God, must remember that we are only borrowing this land from him. We must have compassion for those around us, both locally and globally. As global citizens we must ensure that we are being fair and compassionate. It is okay to seek wealth, but only if that wealth is used to help those who cannot help themselves. Solomon calls for a system that uses fairness, justice, and compassion to help redistribute wealth.
