Money, Greed and God:
Why Capitalism Is the Solution and not the Problem
Dr. Jay W. Richards
Tuesday. Oct. 12
Does capitalism promote greed? Can a person follow Jesus’s call to love others and also support capitalism? Was our recent economic crisis caused by flaws inherent to our free market system?
The Thomas Jefferson Institute for Public Policy is proud to offer you a free opportunity to hear on-line Dr. Jay Richards. He presents a new approach to capitalism, revealing how it’s fully consistent with Jesus’s teachings and the Christian tradition, while also showing why this system is our best bet for renewed economic vigor. Americans are bombarded with two competing messages about money and capitalism: • Wealth is bad and causes much of the world’s suffering. • Wealth is good and God wants you to prosper and be rich. Richards exposes these myths, and other common misconceptions about capitalism, and reveals the surprising ways that capitalism is, in fact, the best system to respond to the biblical mandates of alleviating poverty and protecting the environment. He equips his audience to take practical steps in their own lives to conduct business, worship God, and serve others without falling into the “prosperity gospel” trap. Richards is a Senior Fellow of the Discovery Institute and a Contributing Editor of The American at the American Enterprise Institute. In recent years he has been a Visiting Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, and a Research Fellow and Director of Acton Media at the Acton Institute. Richards earned a Master of Divinity, a Master of Theology, and a Ph.D. (with honors) in philosophy and theology from Princeton Theological Seminary
