While you may have heard that economics was once dubbed the “dismal science,” Professor Claar’s work demonstrates that this field is quite the opposite, especially when it does what Professor Claar does: combine sobering analysis and Christian principles to offer a vision of hope. He has a long record of publications, including his influential book, Economics in Christian Perspective: Theory, Policy and Life Choices, now in its tenth printing and recently translated into Chinese. Professor Claar is also the author of Fair Trade? Its Prospects as a Poverty Solution. His scholarly articles have appeared in several peer-reviewed outlets including Applied Economics, Public Finance Review, Faith & Economics, and the Journal of Markets & Morality. He currently serves the Acton Institute as an Affiliate Scholar in Economics. His latest book (with coauthor Greg Forster), John Maynard Keynes and the Rise of Economic Materialism: We're All Dead, is scheduled to be published in 2019 by Palgrave Macmillan.You can follow him on Twitter at @victorclaar.
