Ye shall have just balances, and a just ephah, and a just bath. The ephah and the bath shall be of one measure, that the bath may contain the tenth part of an homer, and the ephah the tenth part of an homer: the measure thereof shall be after the homer. And the shekel shall be twenty gerahs: twenty shekels, five and twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, shall be your maneh.It simply boggles my mind regarding the minutiae of human life that God concerns himself with, yet he often appears absent concerning the big issues.
~ King James version ~
Tao is not an economist!
~ possible Taoist alternative ~
Economics is a human construct. It exists nowhere else in nature.
