Economics in Theological Thought

Economics in Theological Thought

        I will approach this subject from the recognition that the study of economic systems requires the thought of theology, the demands of justice, the critique of philosophy, and the regulation of law so that a well-informed person can speak about economics in a way that is healing to the people of the world. The globalization of economics has heightened the impact of a monetized world with the distribution of power to persons that govern the earth’s resources who are not elected officials. Elected officials are to be held accountable to the people and the law, in the case of billionaires their power is not drawn from the state, and the law is on their side rather than the demands of justice.
