A Christian Critique of Economics

Author(s): Johnston, Carol

About this Entry
Abstract \xa0 Both of the major economic models--capitalism and Marxism--have a long history in which basic assumptions and value choices were made that govern the models. Johnston examines economics from the perspective of her Christian faith to ask how the economic models so powerful today have missed crucial elements of Jewish and Christian standards of justice, and how they might be transformed to create economies that are healthier for human and natural communities and ecologically sustainable.
