God and the Evil of Scarcity: Moral Foundations of Economic Agency

Out of stock. Usually delivers within 4 weeks.


Written for theologians, philosophers, social scientists, and policymakers interested in the theological and philosophical foundations of economics, God and the Evil of Scarcity argues that precarious, subsistence living is not an immutable law of nature. Rather, such a chronic, dismal condition reflects personal and collective moral failure. Barrera contends that scarcity serves as an occasion for God to provide for us through each other and that there are strong metaphysical and scriptural warrants for enacting progressive social policies for a better sharing of the goods of the earth.
