KNW 2309 - Theology and Economics: God, Faith, and Money


Credits: 3

Provides students with skills for a theological evaluation of economic theories and practices, particularly as they bear on the rise and ascendancy of the global market. Discusses the historical development of economics in relation to Protestant and Catholic teaching on economics. Includes a brief component on Jewish and Islamic teaching. Asking what theology has to do with economics and how economics works, students learn about the historical development of economics according to the “worldly philosophers” to discover answers to these questions. The final weeks of the course examine Jewish and Islamic teaching, comparing them to Protestant and Catholic economic ethics.
