Symposium Panel: Blending Religious and Economic Insights on the Good Life
Date: 5:00pm - 6:30pm PDT October 27, 2009 Location: Stamm Hall
The fields of religion and economics are quite different, but arguably both will play crucial roles in helping people live the good life. And there may be more overlap than one would assume, given the calls of some religious leaders for a just and caring economics, or the realization among some economists that material well-being cannot simply be equated with the good life. Yet rarely do economists and religious leaders engage in dialogue. What common ground is possible in reimagining the good life, given the rather distinct interests of these two fields?
