This is a four-session course, based on the book by John Kelly. Kelly approaches the problem as a believing Christian (but the idea is equally of interest to those of other or no religion): Does “God” (such as s/he may or may not be) care about economics? Kelly finds that his Bible contains a prescription for prosperity with freedom and natural equality.
Thru this course, you can evaluate the idea for yourself, and decide whether Christianity (or any of the related religions) has anything insightful to say about how should organize our economies.
This is the same course that was formerly titled “Economics as if God Cared;” we have retitled it in hopes of offending everyone equally. No outside reading is required for this course, everything being presented in the class by instructor Bob Jene. It’s open to everyone without prerequisite. The course meets Tuesdays, July 9 thru July 30, and you can register here or by phoning 312 450 2906. The only charge is a $25 registration fee.
