Overview

Journal of Markets & Morality is a peer-reviewed academic journal engaging in theological and social discourse on modern economic issues. This intellectual journal, published twice each year, explores a variety of theological, economic, and political perspectives, bringing together a diverse assembly of academic scholarship on morality in economics. Some of the questions raised include whether students should be encouraged to pursue graduate education in the modern economy, the morality of antitrust laws, the effect of Libertarian politics on neoconservative Catholics, John Calvin’s social and economic thought, and the moral question of universal healthcare and welfare. Each issue includes dozens of book reviews on economic-religious publications, articles, editorials, and controversial discourse.

With the Logos Bible Software edition, all Scripture passages in Journal of Markets & Morality are tagged and appear on mouseover. Moreover, Scripture references are linked to your preferred translation, giving you instant context. This makes these issues more powerful and easier to access than ever before for scholarly work or for casual reading. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “education,” or “socialism.”
