What does this mean?

Yet the market economy is not as unchangeable as the laws of the Medes and the Persians in the book of Daniel?--FT Editorial - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

  1. That markets are more flexible than Divine-Law-realized-in-temporal-events.

    Explanation: The message of the Book of Daniel is that God rules the nations of the world. The rule of the Medes (more indirect than direct really)and the Persians (complete and encompassing) is to be seen as part of God's plan and the long-term preservation of his people through their times of suffering, as well as their preparation for end times as prophesied in the book. Markets are a little less rigid, this author seems to hold - and perhaps less concerned for the eternal welfare of the oppressed ;)
