Economics & Human Lives

This is the title of the forthcoming issue of The Right of Aesthetic Realism to Be Known, which will usefully educate people in how to see the financial crisis we are in the midst of now. In this important issue, number 1729, editor Ellen Reiss writes in her commentary about the real cause of the economic meltdown and what is necessary for economics to be strong and kind. And she discusses what Eli Siegel, poet, critic, and founder of Aesthetic Realism was first to see in 1976, the truth of which has been borne out year after year. Mr. Siegel explained:

"There will be no economic recovery in the world until economics itself, the making of money, the having of jobs, becomes ethical; is based on good will rather than on the ill will which has been predominant for centuries."

There will be a special repeat performance of this moving, educational event on Sunday, April 27 at 2:30 PM at the Aesthetic Realism Foundation, 141 Greene Street, NYC .
