Quote of the Day

from a letter posted online by the Rt. Rev. Mark S. Sisk, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York

"There can be little doubt that capitalism is a productive way to order economic life. But we need to remember, as the (Occupy Wall Street) protestors have reminded us, that that is all that it is – an economic system based on the entirely reasonable propositions that capital has value, and that supply and demand are the most efficient way to set prices. Capitalism is of no help at all in determining what is morally good – that is something that must instead be determined by the community’s wider values."
