Bulls, Bears & Golden Calves - Thinking Christianly about Economics

Writing from a Christian ethical perspective, Stapleford insightfully shows how ethics are inextricably intertwined with economic life and analysis. He interacts with seven standard introductory economics texts, exploring the moral challenges embedded in various macro-, micro- and international economic theories and outlining a faithful response to them. Among the important ethical issues addressed are: possibilities and perils of economic growth, the role of government in the economy, the growth of work and loss of leisure, lending and borrowing, poverty and distributive justice, environmental stewardship, business and social responsibility, legalized gambling, the pornography industry, debt relief for less developed countries, the economics of immigration, and population control.
