Religion and Capitalism: Allies, Not Enemies


In this book, Edmund Opitz explores the relationship between religion and capitalism and how free markets can be complementary to Christianity and other organized religions. Going off of his established views on free markets, Opitz explains in his work how governments that try to promote a sense of stability and fiarnes within free market societies often end up becomming repressive forces. Furthermore, he sees free markets funcitoning as religions due to the unwriten rules that develop within them. It is this informal order that allows fee markets to function on their own. Anyone interested in economics, religion, or philosophy will enjoy this work.
