We Can Make the World Economy a Sustainable Global Home

by Lewis S. Mudge

This book by theologian-ethicist Lewis Mudge offers fresh philosophical and theological concepts, economic and political insights, and practical financial proposals to counter the causes and lasting effects of the worldwide recession that began in late 2007.

The historical and global dimensions of Mudge's perspective and his open-ended suggestions keep the book's arguments highly relevant today, little affected by daily changes in a world economy still suffering from the reverberations of the credit collapse several years ago. Editorial references in footnotes provide up-to-date data and add nuances to the major issues raised by Mudge.
