Christianity and Capitalism

In this group, we’ll be reading essays by Paul Heyne and Wendell Berry (and possibly others) to get some ideas about how Christianity does or does not fit easily with our capitalist economy. The group meets from 4pm-5pm in the T.I. and is co-led by Dr. Trey Carson of the Economics and Business Department. For more information, email Jarrett Knight at jwknig@email.wm.edu.
