Review Essay: Religion and the Rise of Capitalism

Paul Oslington

Abstract


The title of Benjamin Friedman’s new book Religion and the Rise of Capitalism alludes to Max Weber and R. H. Tawney who argued there was a strong causal connection between religious ideas and economic behavior. In contrast to Weber and Tawney, this is a book about the influence of religious ideas on economic ideas and the development of economics as a discipline, especially as they are relevant to American capitalism.
