Religion, Business and Wealth in Modern Britain

Full Product Description

The connections between religion and capitalism have intrigued and challenged policy makers, pressure groups, theologians, sociologists, economists and historians for centuries. Should economics be subordinate to morality and the ethics of religion? Has Protestantism been conducive to capitalism? How should the rich use there wealth? What roles should rich people play in the life of religious organisations? Religion, Business and Wealth in Modern Britain addresses such questions in the context of modern Britain, with three identifiable approaches. First, many of the essays examine siginificant individuals and groups within religious and ethnic minorities such as Quakers, Methodists, Congregationalists. Second, a number of essays discuss issues raised by these empirical studies from a broader analytical perspective. Third, the editor's introduction and several essays provide a theoretical angle on aspects of religion and economics such as the relationship between classical economists and Christian political economy.The preliminary survey of historical controversies with religion and business, and the accompanying chronology of significant events since the 1770s is an extremely useful introduction for those unfamiliar with the field.
