Evolution, Capitalism and the Buddha

by Vaddhaka

In this talk given on Sanghanight in Stockholm Sweden, 22 of February 2016, Vaddhaka argues that capitalist economics is based upon a narrow evolutionary view associated with social Darwinism and a distorted interpretation of the survival of the fittest. So the question is then: Can modern approaches to evolution help to develop a new approach to economics more in line with buddhist values?
