On the usefulness of a flat economics to the world of faith Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Is economics unduly flat? Perhaps, sometimes. But part of the power of economics comes from the parsimony of its approach to human nature. If and when we search for more complex approaches, we will need to understand the tradeoffs involved in choosing between that power and simplicity and the alternatives. Rather than deepening our economics with faith, it may be that we are better off using a relatively flat economics to enrich religious understandings. © 2014 by Econ Journal Watch unless otherwise cited.
