  • Welfare, the Stoics, and reference dependence
    • Authors: Daniel Ray Wilmoth
      Abstract: Economic accounts of consumer welfare focus heavily on the physical circumstances of the consumer.  In contrast, in many religious and philosophical traditions, welfare is thought to be largely independent of physical circumstances.  This essay argues that the introduction of reference dependence enriches economic models of choice in a way that connects the economic account of welfare with the contrasting account offered by the Stoics.  The Stoics wrote extensively about the relationship between wealth and welfare, and this essay argues that the model of choice implicit in their writings involves comparison of consumption to a reference.  When reference dependence appears in economic models, consumption options are chosen after evaluation through comparison to a reference.  For the Stoics, however, the correct primary object of choice was not consumption but the reference to which consumption is compared.  Other traditions and other developments in economic theory are also discussed.

  • The Dynamic and Righteous Use of Wealth in James 5:1–6
    • Authors: Todd A. Scacewater
      Abstract: James’s epistle contains three sections on the rich and poor. In 5:1­–6, James condemns the rich for oppressing the poor. By interacting with Jewish teachings on the proper use of wealth, he promotes an alternative to the wicked use of resources by the rich whom he addresses. James’s vision for the use of our resources is that they be used dynamically and righteously, with utmost urgency as we have entered “the latter days.” The final section argues that James’s vision of a dynamic and righteous use of wealth aligns best with markets that are free but morally guided.

  • “The School of Liberty” (1890)
    • Authors: Frédéric Passy
      Abstract: Notwithstanding your warm welcome, it is as a defendant that I stand before you in the dock today. And this defendant is fully aware of the extent and the gravity of the charges bearing down on him. He knows that he must not only defend himself and his ideas, but that he must first and foremost defend his friends, his colleagues and masters, in other words all those who together constitute the school to which they pride themselves in belonging, namely the School of Liberty. It is true that having to defend such men also means being defended by them. Because this school, which did not specifically stand trial before you, but came under a vigorous and most talented attack all the same, this school brings with it an imposing lineage of noble hearts and great minds. From Jean Bodin to Anne-Robert Turgot, from Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban to Pierre Le Pesant de Boisguilbert and François Quesnay, from Turgot to Frédéric Bastiat, Pierre Samuel Dupont de Nemours, Jean-Baptiste Say, Charles Dunoyer, Pellegrino Rossi, and Michel Chevalier; a lineage which, I’d like to remind you, is primarily French because of its representatives’ citizenship, but is also universal thanks to its shared interests and the reach of its doctrines. Hence, it connects to Italy via Cesare Beccaria, Gaetano Filanghieri, and Camillo Benso di Cavour; to England with John Locke, Adam Smith, Richard Cobden, Robert Peel, and William Gladstone; to America thanks to Benjamin Franklin and William Channing; to Switzerland via Alexandre Vinet to cite only one; and finally to the whole of humanity, through everything that embraces respect for the human person; through all that which from a material standpoint as much as from a moral one, promotes dedication to personal responsibility, without which there is neither experience nor merit, nor right, nor duty, nor progress, nor dignity.

      Abstract: On this half-millennium anniversary of the event that is popularly understood to have started the Protestant Reformation, the posting and publication of the Ninety-Five Theses in 1517, it is worth revisiting the life and legacy of Martin Luther, particularly with an eye toward recovering his understanding of vocation and its broader implications for society, both then and now.Jordan J.

  • Review Essay: The Shadow of Constantine and Our Economic Life
    • Authors: Dylan Pahman
      Abstract: The goal of my essay is, in dialogue with Shadow of Constantine and Political Theologies, to demonstrate that political theology needs political economy. I use the latter term, as did Lionel Robbins and the classical economists, to mean the normative and interdisciplinary application of the insights of economic science to questions of policy. As Frank Knight put it, “Without an adequate ethics and sociology in the broad sense, economics has little to say about policy.” In distinction from positive economics, political economy integrates the insights of political philosophy, sociology, and history together with economic analysis and makes no pretense about being value free. While welfare economics has been the preferred normative approach in recent years, classical political economy has continued in the works of many economists from a wide variety of schools within the discipline. It is far less quantitative and far more open to insights from other disciplines, making it a natural point of contact with political theology and Christian social thought. Examining the issues of economic inequality, the democratic nature of business and markets, and religious liberty, I argue that Orthodox and other political theologians need economics and political economy if they ever hope to step out from beneath Constantine’s shadow.Dylan Pahman, "Review Essay: The Shadow of Constantine and Our Economic Life," Journal of Markets & Morality 20, no. 2 (Fall 2017): 311-323

  • Welfare, the Stoics, and Reference Dependence
    • Authors: Daniel R. Wilmoth
      Abstract: Economic accounts of consumer welfare focus on the physical circumstances of consumers. In contrast, in many religious and philosophical traditions, welfare is thought to be largely independent of physical circumstances. This essay argues that the introduction of reference dependence enriches economic models of choice in a way that connects the economic account of welfare with the contrasting account offered by the Stoics. The Stoics wrote about the relationship between wealth and welfare, and the model of choice implicit in their writings involves comparison of consumption to a reference. When reference dependence appears in economic models, options for consumption are chosen after evaluation through comparison to a reference. For the Stoics, however, the reference itself was an object of choice. Choosing the right reference allowed the Stoics to achieve contentment even in adverse circumstances.Daniel R.

  • The Sanctification Process and Stewardship in Free Markets
    • Authors: Jeffrey E. Haymond
      Abstract: This article reviews the biblical doctrines of sanctification and stewardship and assesses their implications for economic institutional arrangements. Sanctification is one part of the process of salvation and an aspect that requires human cooperation with God. Our freedom to choose has eternal consequences as we become increasingly conformed to the image of Christ. While sanctification occurs in many facets of life, stewardship of resources that God has delegated to us is a responsibility that covers most of our daily lives. Biblical stewards are not only to provide an accounting of the use of God’s resources but also are expected to grow and optimize those resources. Free market institutions provide a favorable environment for sanctification of God’s people in the dimension of material possessions. Restrictions on freedom in markets limit the growth an individual can achieve in this facet of sanctification.Jeffrey E. Haymond, "The Sanctification Process and Stewardship in Free Markets," Journal of Markets & Morality 20, no. 2 (Fall 2017): 279-297

  • Is a Just Price Enough'

      Abstract: A standard definition of a just price asserts that it is determined solely by “willing consent between buyer and seller.” This is a satisfactory prima facie definition, but its limitations are exposed in financial transactions that involve significant disparities in knowledge or power. Then it seems particularly important for a maximal definition of justice to incorporate the Golden Rule, so that a just price is “whatever amount is agreed upon by a willing buyer and a willing seller who do to the other as they would have done to them.” This article sharpens that definition through dialogue with such seminal philosophers as Thomas Aquinas, Joseph Fletcher, and Nicholas Wolterstorff, and it concludes with heuristic observations to stimulate further discovery.Michael Wittmer, "Is Just Price Enough'" Journal of Markets & Morality 20, no. 2 (Fall 2017): 263-278

  • Five Factors of New Testament Economic Interpretation: Rohrbaugh’s
           Parable of the Talents
    • Authors: Klaus Issler
      Abstract: This study raises awareness of the diversity of interpretations of the New Testament Greco-Roman economic context by providing an orientation to the literature regarding five key factors employed in Rohrbaugh’s countertraditional study of Jesus’ parable of the [talents: (1)] an interdisciplinary research method, (2) Foster’s theory of “limited good,” (3) models of the rich-poor spectrum, (4) views regarding the predominant economic activity characterizing the Greco-Roman era, and finally, a factor of a different sort, (5) the role of canonical Scripture within an interdisciplinary research method. Awareness of the challenges in the study of economic data in the New Testament may encourage a more cautious approach in making interpretive claims, reflecting a humble recognition of the present limitations of evidence.Klaus Issler, "Five Factors of New Testament Interpretation: Rohrbaugh's Parable of the Talents," Journal of Markets & Morality 20, no. 2 (Fall 2017): 243-261

  • The Dynamic and Righteous Use of Wealth in James 5:1–6
    • Authors: Todd Scacewater
      Abstract: James’s epistle contains three sections on the rich and poor. In 5:1–6, James condemns rich landowners for oppressing their poor workers. By interacting with Jewish teachings on the proper use of wealth, he promotes an alternative to the wicked use of resources by the rich whom he addresses. James’s vision for the use of our resources is that they be used dynamically and righteously with utmost urgency as we have entered “the latter days” and with a concern for the love of our neighbors. A variety of ways of using money in this manner are suggested.Todd Scacewater, "The Dynamic and Righteous Use of Wealth in James 5:1-6," Journal of Markets & Morality 20, no. 2 (Fall 2017): 227-242

  • Editorial: The Editor as Steward
    • Authors: Dylan Pahman
      Abstract: The late Michael Novak, requiescat in pace, said that true callings are characterized by “[l]ong hours, frustrations, small steps forward, struggles: unless these too are welcomed with a certain joy, the claim to being called has a hollow ring.” It has been my joy these past six years to work through “[l]ong hours, frustrations, small steps forward, [and] struggles” as part of the editorial staff of this journal, accompanied by the leadership, mentorship, and friendship of Dr. Jordan Ballor.Having accepted a position as postdoctoral researcher in theology and economics at the VU (Free University) Amsterdam as part of its “What Good Markets Are Good For” project, Jordan has stepped down as executive editor of the Journal of Markets & Morality. His tenure at this journal is not limited to his time as executive editor, but began with volume 7, issue 1 (Spring 2004), his first issue as associate editor. Over the years he oversaw theme issues, controversies, translations, digital content, and more. This journal is richer for his influence and poorer for his absence.Dylan Pahman, "Editorial: The Editor as Steward," Journal of Markets & Morality 20, no. 2 (Fall 2017): 221-223
