Money, Greed, and God: The Christian Case for Free Enterprise
Jay W. Richards
HarperOn, 302 pages
Can a good capitalist also be a good Christian? Yes, says Jay W. Richards, with emphasis. Here the research assistant professor at the Busch School of Business at The Catholic University of America defends capitalism by showing how entrepreneurship, undertaken virtuously, actually helps create a more just society. He also dispels several popular myths about free markets and their impact on communities, including the notions that they create a consumerist culture, threaten our environmental resources, or further enrich the wealthy to the detriment of the poor. This book offers thoughtful reading for understanding economic issues through the eyes of faith.
