Anne Bradley, Vice President of economic initiatives at the Institute for Faith, Work & Economics, brilliantly and clearly explains in Be fruitful and Multiply why economics is necessary for making God-pleasing decisions.
She also de-mystifies the word ‘economics’. She writes, “economics is essential to pleasing God because it is about making personal choices under conditions of scarcity. As part of our human condition, we are constantly making decisions. In this regard, you are already an economist” (p. 5).
