First Topic – Poverty and the Developing World
Michael Miller of the Acton Institute is here to examine poverty and the developing world. We look at some of the causes of poverty in the developing world, critically analyze current poverty alleviation strategies including aid and government planning, and focus on private property, rule of law, markets, and culture for economic development.
Second Topic – Critiquing the Prosperity Gospel
Dr. Anthony Bradley examines the destructive impact that the “Prosperity Gospel” – the teaching according to which health and wealth are rewards for those who believe in a certain way, has on both human flourishing and authentic Christianity. We outline more constructive connection between wealth, economics, and Christian theology.
