When Charity Doesn’t Look Like Charity

When Charity Doesn’t Look Like Charity April 23, 2013

From my friend Josh Good at the Values and Capitalism project, here’s a great video showing how sustainable economic solutions can be built on free market principles:

If you teach – at a university, at a school or at home – on values and economics, you might go to Values and Capitalism and learn more about their monographs.  I’ve read a few and they’re great summaries of basic conservative principles of government and economics and how they serve the common good.

    This small scale job-creating capitalism is fantastic. Like Chris says, “We need much more of it.” My concern is what happens when corporations grow to the point where they wield power in defense of their own interests and against the interests of the people? One alternative to that is to allow the people and employees to wield power as well as the entrepenuers. But how many entrepenurial employers are willing to be generous when the people/employees’ demands arise beyond above what the employer has imagined?

    We need enterprising people who are willing to share or give power to the people/employees at some point. If more enterprising Christians could live by founding companies and helping them to maturity and then giving up power to consortiums of employees while they go and start another such company, we would have something.
