An invited presentation to the Scholè House Center for Christian Thought at VCU. The talk was to help the audience think about how to reconcile the Economic Way of Thinking with historical (Augustinian) Christian philosophy.

Abstract: “In Christian thought, God is the creator and sovereign owner of all things. At the same time, humans are sub-creators and stewards within God’s creation. These statements create tensions and opportunities for the method of thinking that we call economics, which is the study of how people make choices (for good or ill) about scarce resources. This talk will introduce the logic of economic thinking, while discussing ways that Christian faith can lend meaning and direction to some of the puzzles that confront the economic thinker.”
