Christian Perspectives On Globalization. "Globalization" may be the most hotly debated issue surrounding poverty. The benefits and costs of global economic integration are critical and complex.
â€¢ Is a globalized, free-market economy part of the solution to economic injustice or part of the problem?
â€¢ Are the international monetary systems pursuing policies that will reduce poverty or are they serving the interests of the wealthy?
â€¢ What do pro-poor policy reforms look like in the areas of trade and foreign investment?
â€¢ What kinds of immigration restrictions or reforms are consistent with the Christian faith?
â€¢ Should development aid be awarded only to well-governed, democratic countries?
â€¢ Would unrestrained economic growth imply environmental destruction?
Economic Justice assembles leading economists to debate these and other issues surrounding globalizationâ€™s effects on the poor. Writers urge an informed church to help identify the essentials of a Christian perspective on the societal, environmental and economic implications of globalization and to live accordingly.
