Abstract:

Intended as an interfaith clarification of the relationship between the material and the spiritual world, this volume first inspects secular beliefs about the relationship between economics and ethics before investigating the attitudes of three major religions toward this interplay. Exploring the contrasts and similarities between the treatment of economic issues in each of the great monotheistic religions, Rodney Wilson reveals how each tradition considers such subjects as individual wealth, lending, economic regulation, usuary, insurance, capitalism, socialism, and banking. He concludes with an intriguing epilogue on the rapidly expanding field of business ethics.
