THE BUSINESS OF VIRTUE

Clive Wright

Clive Wright explores the congruence between the Western economic Systems presently holding sway and Christian thought and religion within our heritage.

I was attracted by Schumacher's thesis 'Small is Beautiful'. Should things go wrong, as invariably they do, on a small scale it is nowhere near so serious as on a big scale. And then Clive Wright makes me more optimistic. Globalization has great positive potential as well as its menace. I do not feel guilty enjoying a good quality of life. We are both spiritual and material beings and the incarnation is a theological expression that Christianity is a religion rooted in the material world. Whilst wealth creation certainly poses a moral challenge as to how it is to be conducted with due wisdom and responsibility, to shun it would also have dire consequences in denying individuals opportunity to attain their potential. From the lowest human needs for survival there is an ascending hierarchy crowned by the desire for self-actualization. The author explores the congruence between the Western economic Systems presently holding sway and Christian thought and religion within our heritage.
