Description

Drawing on the U.S. Catholic bishops' 1986 statement Economic Justice for All, The Almighty and the Dollar presents the Christian perspective on economic justice as it pertains to the contemporary economy. In addition to substantial extracted portions of the bishops' 1986 statement that are particularly relevant to today's economic situation, The Almighty and the Dollar includes chapters on globalization, welfare reform, racism, immigrant justice, and more. Both practical and theoretical in content, The Almighty and the Dollar serves as an aid for anyone interested in reflecting further upon ethical values and economic justice.
