Although the language of "economic justice" is used right across the political spectrum today, there is no consensus about what it means. Secular perspectives are in deep and confusing disarray. This is of little help to the poor or the rich.
Can the Bible do better? Most certainly, according to this book. Whereas secular approaches tend to focus either on justice in production and exchange ("free trade" versus "fair trade") or justice in distribution (equality versus freedom), a biblically-rooted account shows that both of these aspects are central to economic justice. The book indicates how this understanding applies to contemporary topics such as the relationships between borrowers and lenders, and the use of monopoly power.
