How a Christian Economist Thinks about Helping His Neighbor

Christian economist, Forbes.com columnist, and fellow Misesian Art Carden is featured on this week’s episode of the Research on Religion podcast.

The interview focuses on how Christians should view the various policies and programs that are intended to help the poor, but have many unintended and undesirable consequences. It also features commentary on the economic impact of Hurricane Sandy and the misguided policies hampering people’s responses to it.

Give it a listen, and also check out Art’s organization, the Institute for Faith, Work, and Economics.

    Tragically, the Institute link does not actually seem to go anywhere.
