Christian Perspectives on the Financial Crash examines the underlying economic and ethical causes of the crash of 2008. The focus of the book is on the long-term lessons rather than on the immediate action that has to be taken to deal with the consequences. The authors of the book look at the interaction of ethical and economic questions. They also examine how Christians should respond — not just by commenting on public policy issues but also by encouraging a renewal of virtue in the financial sector and through Christian social action to help those harmed by the crash. The book also considers how new types of financial institutions can be nurtured to complement existing ones.
The book will be available for £12.95.
