What Christianity Tells Us About Capitalism

 
Date:
Monday, March 19, 2018
 
Time:
7:00 p.m.
 
Description:
In this lecture, Elizabeth Bruenig would like to go through the history of Christian legal and theological thinking about property, governance, contracts and workers, and point out that, while referring oneself to the middle ages or even late antique period would probably appear reactionary to most, there's a historically-inclined strain of Christian leftism that takes its inspiration not from futurism but from Christian sources that came before Marx, and indeed, before liberalism or industrial capitalism. She'll argue this is a worthwhile, intellectually satisfying and politically coherent strain of Christian thought that makes much more sense than the contemporary Christian politics on offer.
