Show Me The Money – With All Due Respect
In the run-up to this weekend's federal election, Megan Powell du Toit and Michael Jensen get all economical.Jesus famously said, "You cannot serve both God and money," or wealth, depending on the translation. While Christian scandals often involve abuse of sex or power, love of money seems to be the sin we often tolerate. Is that because Christians in the west have been living under capitalism for some time now? Capitalism gets quite a bad rap these days, so the WADR team asks, Is it the root of all evil? How should Christians relate to issues of money and ownership? Megan and Michael then talk to capitalism expert Professor Gordon Menzies from the University of Technology, Sydney, about how economics and faith might interrelate. And we finish the show with the television series that has been called a satire of late capitalism – Apple TV’s Severance.
