Quickly, name the top 5 Evangelical scholars doing good work in the field of economics and the markets. Can't do it? How about the top 3? Still can't do it? Okay, so maybe this is an area where we need some help. Enter the Acton Institute.
Alan and I had the opportunity to attend their annual university this month. Approximately 30 scholars from around the world attempted to integrate economics, market philosophy and politics with a Christian worldview. Overall, it was fantastic training and an area where Evangelicals need to give more attention. Acton is a tremendous resource and according to Jay Richards, about half their scholars are Protestants. And certainly, their Catholic scholars have much to offer in this area of study as well.
Acton has generously posted the audio from this year's seminars. My top 4 favorite presenters: 1) Jay Richards, 2) Jennifer Roback Morse, 3) Robert Sirico and 4) Michael Miller. Start with their seminars.
