Measure economics in terms of humanity

By Yang Fang-chih 楊芳枝

This is a political culture where we habitually view things in terms of how they will benefit a certain class economically. We should define and measure the economy with a humanistic yardstick instead in terms of how much money the capitalists can make.

Yang Fang-chih is an assistant professor of English literature at National Dong Hwa University.
