This article is part of my posts on the economic system of distributism. This is from practicaldistributism.blogspot.com which you can find here:
“I have presented in several articles that distributism is not just another way of juggling numbers in an attempt to make sense of economics. Just as capitalism and collectivism are fundamentally different ways of envisioning the economic and political environment of a society, distributism is yet another way that is fundamentally different than those views. Some people think that distributism is an attempt at a “middle ground” or blending of capitalism and socialism. In fact, such a blending will result in what Belloc called the Servile State – something entirely different than what distributism hopes to achieve. It can be difficult for distributists to appreciate just how fundamental these differences in economic views are, and that makes it difficult to appreciate just how much of a change we are asking of those we are trying to convince. We face tremendous obstacles in trying to establish even some of what distributism proposes. I would like to present an example of this by considering the concept of price, and the difference between the capitalist “market price” the masses have been taught to accept, and the distributist “just price” we are trying to help them understand.”
