This “treatise”, compiled and composed over many years, is in response to the identified need to look at the combined worth of history, religion and economics, with particular interest in the ethical, moral and philosophical aspects. With unreserved deference to experts on each of these individual subjects, the book presents the “layman’s” opinion that some simplified understanding of these issues, so critical to our everyday lives, will help maintain a balanced appreciation of the vital interaction between history, religion and economics, and will indicate that looking at only one aspect at a time could miss out on dimensions that give greater meaning and usefulness to the other/s. The book demonstrates that many of the religious “scriptures” are, in fact, also economic principles. Many are applicable even now, although their origin may not be appreciated. In addition, much of the economic thought was, and probably still is, intertwined with, or may even originate in part from, ethics and philosophy. The book describes the need for a re-think of many of the principles of economics, and how modern economics should be part of a “New World Order”, that can give greater meaning to religion and greater appreciation of history, and help shape a more wholesome future society. While the major Faiths of Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Bahá’í are discussed, others such as Hinduism and Buddhism have similar tenets.Only authentic original religious texts and references from renowned authors are used. The reference list at the end will be appreciated by anyone wishing to delve deeper into any subject presented.It is hoped that the book makes good and easy reading, but this should not detract from the value of the content. The book combines some qualities of a textbook, but the aim is to help widen the horizons of the reader.
