Abstract:

"Courageously challenging economists' zealous faith in the great god of growth, renowned theologian John B. Cobb proposes that policies engendering sustainable development - where the economy serves the community, and not vice versa - are not only feasible and economically sound, but more faithfully represent Christianity's traditional emphasis on the dignity of the individual and the value of the common good. Addressing such urgent issues as the degradation of creation, the international debt crisis, Third World development, NAFTA, GATT, and the 'new world order', Cobb speaks frankly and passionately about the state of the world's economy - and its future. Novices and experts in the dismal science will gain much from his well-reasoned and passionate plea to rethink our priorities before it's too late"--Back cover.
