Since economic equilibrium is tied to the economy and since the economy is a reflection of human action and humans are ‘created in His Image’, the equilibrium has a divine aspect. As an example, an affinity between people can be physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual; all of these are less than perfect expressions of the concept of absolute love. Equilibrium, like love, is very powerful – yet it is beyond our full comprehension – and yet it is real. Ego-driven intervention (no one can claim to understand all the implications of any intervention on all of humanity across the entire time horizon) is a corruption of the economy. If the intervention stops, all of the corruption will be purged and then the economy will be a true source of prosperity and justice.
God created humans as part of a beautifully and infinitely complex love, and God also provided the perfect institution for social cooperation (the economy), and for the flow of the grace of God. Since this is the best means for human civilization to progress towards perfection it makes no sense to go in some other direction (which is sure to be less desirable) just because we see some of the hardships which are necessary for humanity to overcome in order to make progress. Besides, there is no moral authority to intervene in the economy.
