Foundations of Economics is an introduction to economic principles. Readers will come away confident in the truth of economics as they discover that the fundamental principles of human action are rooted in the Christian doctrines of creation and humanity. Therefore a Christian view of God, man, and the universe provides a sound basis for economic law. Additionally, the Christian ethic of private property is integrated throughout the entire discussion of economic policy.
Foundations of Economics also explains the relevance of economics for fulfilling the cultural mandate set forth in the first two chapters of Genesis. Economics can help us in our task to be fruitful and multiply and have dominion over the earth, without spoiling creation, starving to death, or descending into a barbaric struggle for survival. It is my hope that readers will understand how the Christian view of men and things allows us to discover economic laws that can be applied in ways that promote both prosperity and justice.
