We have been in the midst of a fundamental and historic shift of how the economies around the world develop. With the collapse of the centralized and state control model of the economy what we have now, however, imperfect it maybe, is the model of the “Free Market.”
This shift is occurring in parallel with two other sociopolitical expressions:
- Smaller government, though the last few years this seems not to have been happening.
- The need, indeed the demand by our society to provide assistance, protection, and distribution of economic benefits in a “fair” way
What we are witnessing is a major shift on “how we can fulfill our expectations of a humanistic society” while we keep the state’s interventions and control power at minimum.
