1909. Book Note: Dotan Lesham, The Origins of Neoliberalism: Modeling the Economy from Jesus to Foucault

Just fascinating. By Dotan Lesham: The origins of Neoliberalism from Jesus to Foucault.

First Aristotle and Plato discuss the well managed estate, economia, producing a surplus, and what to do with it? Should be for leisure to do politics and philosophy, not spent on stuff.

For those who say TINA here is a serious alternative purpose of “economy”.

Then, that model moves into early Christianity and becomes the basis for the monastery and meditation. God’s home, well managed produces a surplus. Expanding meditation to reach the infinite god, becomes that basis for an ideology of growth.
