Toward a Just Political Economy
With this symposium, we present many divergent views of how to develop a just political economy. Rather than a set of policy proposals, this collection provides a holistic vision of political economy through a diversity of views that overlap, conflict, and take radically different approaches to the theme. One aspect of this will be methodological, with different historical, theological, and financial approaches to economic problems. We also aim to highlight the wisdom of religious traditions as applied to questions of economics and justice—a source that is insufficiently consulted in political economy.
