NewsBusters Interview: Dr. Wayne Grudem Discusses Biblical, Moral Case for Free Market Economics
To lift themselves out of poverty, developing nations would do well to pursue a free market economic model. What's more, free markets are actually biblically justifiable and ultimately of greatest moral and material benefit to human beings compared with centrally-planned or socialistic models. In other words, there is a Christian case for free markets and free enterprise. That's the argument put forward by theologian Wayne Grudem and economist Barry Asmus in their brand new book, The Poverty of Nations: A Sustainable Solution, available on Amazon here.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Grudem about his book last Thursday over the phone. You can listen to the full interview below the page break:
