Publisher's Description

Unemployment. Environmental damage. Poverty. Economists Victor Claar and Robin Klay critically engage mainstream economic theory and policy recommendations to provide guidance for faithfully and responsibly addressing these and other important economic issues. Affirming that a just and prosperous society depends for its continued success on maintaining the right balance of power among three principal spheres--democratic governments, market-organized economies, and strong moral and cultural institutions--Claar and Klay demonstrate how Christian principles and values guide and undergird a flourishing and just economy. This text is for use in any course needing a survey of the principles of economics.

Editorial Reviews

"The book is full of insightful analyses of contemporary problems, which makes it feel a bit like the popular book Freakonomics. Claar and Klay's epilogue is worth the price of the book: There they give very practical life lessons taught by economics that are matters of common sense, yet are commonly ignored."
"A worthwhile read which offers many useful insights to serious Christian thinkers and just about anyone else regarding basic economics and Christian responsibility."
"This balanced and well-written book not only explains Christian teaching and economic theory, but relates them to the important economic issues of the day and the challenges they present to living out the Christian faith. The book covers a wide range of contemporary issues of importance to Christians and the wider public. The opening and closing chapters are espcially valuable in offering a perspective on how Christian principles can complement the workings of markets."
"This book presents a view on the respective roles and responsibilities of governments, markets, and civil society for Christians seeking personal undesrtanding and who are called to make a concrete difference in the world."
". . .readers of this book will find that the economics and concern for Christian principles blend together seamlessly--a rare feat indeed among texts of this genre."
". . .a useful and accessible introduction for Christians to a complex subject."
"It's a wonderful read. The writing style is engaging. If you have just a rudimentary grasp of some basic economic concepts the book should be intelligible. What is truly refreshing is the careful and respectful manner in which differing views are presented on some controversial topics even as the authors reveal their takes on issues. The book is neither a social justice harangue nor a libertarian manifesto, just solid Christian reflection on the implications of mainstream economic thought."
". . . An excellent introduction to economics for readers interested in understanding economics within a Christian worldview perspective. The authors combine clear explication of economic principles with passionate personal experience and advice."
