Different Modes of Thought Influenced the Financial Meltdown

This video provides a Marxist critique of capitalism in the context of the financial meltdown.  I would like to draw particular attention to the various belief systems, modes of understanding, and implicit assumptions built into the global economy.

In order to build a better economic system, we’ll need to be explicit about these cognitive elements of the process moving forward.  Worldviews and belief systems will always be a part of the economy because they are part of every human system.  We can no longer just accept their implicit assumptions and remain blind to the systemic effects that arise through this powerful form of cognitive bias.
