Reviews - What do customers think about Prosperity and Poverty: The Compassionate Use of Resources in a World of Scarcity?
Essentially Austrian Economics from a Christian perspective. Jan 31, 2007
E. Calvin Beisner here looks at all the same assumptions that Austrian economics does, though from a biblical perspective. He reasons in more or less the same way; one thing that impressed me about this work, though, is how efficient he is at getting to some rather important conclusions such as: the free market is the most efficient and best way to determine prices. Therefore, to allow any other entity to determine prices (such as the government) is a misuse of resources, and therefore disobeying the Dominion Mandate set forth in Genesis.
This work, though building on the work of other economists such as Ludwig von Mises and Eugene von Bohm-Bawerk, represents the close of communism, and all done from the Christian worldview. Highly recommended!
