Wealth is a means to an end, not the end itself.
This week’s episode seems more relevant than ever since we’ve been living during a pandemic and that’s why I’m so glad I get to share it with you all. My guest this week is the author of the newly released book The Seven Deadly Economic Sins, James Otteson. Our conversation explores everything from the impact of generational wealth to the economic history behind it.
James has an undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame and a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Chicago. He’s currently the John T. Ryan Jr. Professor of Business Ethics in the Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame. His specialties include moral philosophy, the history of economic thought, and business ethics.
Our conversation delves into the relationship between philosophy and economics and what kind of impact that has in the real world. James echoes a lot of my own feelings of wealth, in that it is a tool and not an end goal. This episode is full of food for thought, as is his new book and so I hope it gives you something to chew on today.
