Threefolding

About: rudolf steiner and economics

source
: ... Rudolf Steiner maintained that the entire economic life was encompassed by what he called the “Law of True Price.” He formulated the law in these words: A true price is forthcoming when a man receives, as counter-value for the product he has made, an amount sufficient to enable him to satisfy the whole of his needs, including of course the needs of his dependents, until he will again have completed a like product.”2
...
 One of the more interesting review of threefolding in a modern context.  See the paragraph entitled Lens and Diagnostic Tool which describes the Iraq war and the Real estate bubbles as infringements of one domain over another.
source: ... Focusing the threefold lens on the 2008-housing crisis can be instructive. The kernel of the problem was that mortgage brokers allowed people to purchase homes they could not afford. This actually represents failure of the internal regulation of the economic life itself. From the threefold perspective confusion exists because the agencies in our society charged with regulating lending institutions are viewed as part of the political sphere, e.g. Comptroller of the Currency, Federal Reserve Bank, Office of Thrift Supervision, etc. From a threefold perspective, most of the functions of these agencies really constitute aspects of the economic realm. These agencies failed to perform their functions, apparently at times under political pressure.20 This political pressure represents unlawful interference with the economic life. Deeper exploration would probably reveal that economic interests stood behind the political pressure. Consequently, the matter also apparently represents unlawful commercial interference with the political life. The consequence is the tremendous economic downturn of 2008-2009 and the enormous suffering that it implies.21

Media. Advertising & Culture expose in 4 parts covers the effect on wars, buying habits, elections & the like - even the human potential movement - what/who you think you are & what you believe:

I think it sheds a lot of light on the current election year & abundance of crap for sale in the economy.  My question is how can any of this be rolled back short of catastrophe?  World Wars ended depressions before, now what? another?

The lobbyists are trying to influence the rights sphere (government) as the government influences heavily the economic sphere.

Somehow this seems to me to violate the ideas of open government AND threefolding.
Both sides do it is not enough to justify it.

For anyone who might be paying attention, I can identify at least two violations of threefolding in this area of the election 2012 campaign. Can you? There are probably more.

Mark, when you make bold face lies like "VENTURE CAPITAL is being demonized by our president" it just makes me not want to study your ideas about threefoldedness.

It doesn't make a difference because you're not reading it anyway.  It takes an obamafish to get your attention.

Please note there is a big difference between "venture capital" and what a "private equity" company like Bain does.  Obama has never demonized venture capital (period).  Perhaps you ddn't notice the difference.
Again a distinction without a difference!
