Praise For Money, Greed, and God

“In Money, Greed, and God, Jay Richards has written the definitive case for capitalism, a crisply written and incisive discourse on wealth and poverty, money and morality for the 21st Century.”
-George Gilder, co-founder of the Discovery Institute and author of Wealth and Poverty

“Jay Richards understands the objections to capitalism, and here explains why they do not convince him. The empirical findings revealed in Money, Greed, and God run against those objections.”
-Michael Novak, Chair in Religion and Public Policy at the American Enterprise Institute

In Money, Greed, and God, Jay Richards shows us . . . a capitalism grounded in the truth about human beings as free, morally responsible, co-creators charged with dominion and stewardship of the earth by the loving God to whom we are all ultimately accountable.
-Rev. Robert A. Sirico, President of the Acton Institute

“Money, Greed, and God is both thoughtful and important.”
-Washington Times
