Stewardship Without Prices and Private Property? Modern Evangelical Environmentalism's Struggle to Value Nature

Articles

Abstract

We contend that market prices are indispensable in the valuation and allocation of natural resources and that the price system is not inimical to biblical standards. Furthermore, we contend that the “solutions” as proscribed by the modern “stewardship” proponents ultimately collapse when subjected to the same scrutiny that Ludwig von Mises of the Austrian school of economics placed upon socialism. In other words, the “stewardship” paradigm faces the same problems of economic calculation that have doomed socialism.
