God's Economics (Ebook Shorts): Principles for Fixing Our Financial Crisis

29 pages30 minutes


The collapse of financial systems and the resulting economic crisis have caused a growing distrust of the way things operate. Why has the global economy become so unfair, unsustainable, and unstable, with the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer? A conversation about how the market should operate within a moral framework is needed now more than ever.

Jim Wallis shows that God requires a different kind of economy--both globally and domestically--and provides principles that should guide economic policy matters, including clarity, transparency, accountability, and protecting the common good against private greed. Our financial institutions require real reform, but so do our own economic choices, desires, and demands, for they have far-reaching consequences. Wallis explores things we can all do to help fix the financial crisis and suggests making "Ten Personal Decisions for the Common Good."

This is a selection from The (Un)Common Good: How the Gospel Brings Hope to a World Divided.
