Man Subordinated to Economics

Same as it ever was.

Nothing has so deeply discredited the Christian Church as Her squalid submission to the economic theory of society. The burning question of the Christian attitude toward money is being so eagerly debated nowadays that it is scarcely necessary to do more than remind ourselves that the present unrest, both in Russia and Central Europe, is an immediate judgment upon a financial system that has subordinated man to economics, and that no mere readjustment of economic machinery will have any lasting effect if it keeps man a prisoner inside the machine.

From Dorothy Sayers, “Creed or Chaos?” (May 1940)
