Economic Religion Versus Christian Values

Articles

Abstract

At the end of the twentieth century, economic progress, many people have concluded, has not turned out to be all it was cracked up to be. Indeed, it is significant that a number of economists and organizations are attempting to determine once again how to put economic knowledge at the service of Christian values. It is, in part, a reflection of a growing recognition in American society that the past attempt to separate technical economics from value considerations has not worked as expected. If Christian values are not explicitly incorporated into the practice of economics, it may simply create a vacuum in which other types of values—perhaps at odds with Christianity—dominate the field.
