Raising Expectations: Making Sense, Not Money
Keywords:Lonergan, Economics, Basic Variables, Leisure
AbstractMaking sense is the topic of this essay, and it is tackled in a series of sublating contexts. It begins with reflections on the context of a simple family business that makes sense and that calls for its members to continue to create sense. Questions emerge in that making of sense that lift the group beyond its own comfortable context, so that the issue of making sense places this group and all global sub-groups in the fuller problematic of making over-all sense of our living in history. Issues of leisure and expectations are raised in a manner that point to the need for global collaboration.
