To be economically literate requires neither formal training nor advanced study. For those with the inclination, the most valuable economic principles can be understood with just a little nurturing of the so-called “economic way of thinking.” On February 14, Sarah Estelle, Ph.D. will share how she sees the economic way of thinking as instructive in some of the ways we can love, too. What does economics have to say about our love for mankind? our neighbors around the globe? the least of these among us? our local communities and families? Integrating a Christian perspective and sound economics, Sarah Estelle, Ph.D. will consider in what cases market exchange can communicate love and in which situations market approaches would only crush it.

Group discounts for schools and other organizations available.
