Andy Crouch asks a very good question about Christian integration in economics:
David Brooks gets it just right. We are not machines, and neither is our economy. So where, oh where, are the Christian economists whose work is deeply informed by a non-mechanistic view of human nature, and the ‘faith and trust’ that economies require?â€™
Brooks is writing about the “empirical prison” of economics on both the right and the left. I have some thoughts, but let’s hear yours first. Who are the Christian economists we ought to be listening to? Are Brooks and Crouch on to something, or are they missing an important point?
