Why do journalists not challenge primacy of economic growth?

This article in LinkedIn by Mal Fletcher, UK social futurist and commentator, raises important issues concerning personal and social flourishing, which is the big goal of the Secular Project, Buddhism and Christianity.

I’m wondering why serious journalists don’t enquire into widely held belief systems and then question the apparent primacy of economic growth in the politics of most western nations.

There are alternate views held by people among their audiences.

About Bob Simpson

Bob is project manager of The Australian Media Engagement Project (AMEP). He believes that ethical and independent journalists are vital to the continuing freedom of Australian citizens. You could argue that In recent decades media organisations have subtly subverted journalism to their own private commercial interests, and away from an integrated sense of fairness, well being and shared prosperity in Australian society, especially for the disempowered. AMEP aims to change general media narratives towards greater fairness, well being and shared prosperity in Australia.
