Christian tradition demands basic sustenance for all as a human right. Yet the contemporary capitalist economy makes no such demands, and the free market is not designed to provide basic human sustenance. As Western Christians, how ought we to solve this conundrum? Kent Van Til maintains that the gulf between the two calls for an alternative system of distribution. In this constructively critical work Van Til takes a hard look at the realities of life in a free-market system, including illuminating examples from his own experience in Latin America. He considers how the contemporary capitalist economy guides the distribution of goods around the world, and he examines the inadequacies of this system. Drawing heavily on the ideas of political theorist Michael Walzer and nineteenth-century theologian-statesman Abraham Kuyper, Van Til proposes an alternative system of distributive justice, equalizing the claims to both burdens and benefits.

Publisher description -- With its roots in history and eyes on the future, this book gives readers a balanced perspective of why our economic society is the way it is and where it may be headed by tracing its development from the Middles Ages to the present. Showing that today's economic problems cannot be understood unless we have an understanding of how they first arose, it explores the catalytic role past economic trends and dynamics have played in creating the present challenges we face, and offers suggestions on how we may deal with them most effectively. Focuses on problems and challenges of capitalism after the Golden Age (1945-1973), examining why the age came to an end and how globalization and income inequalities have changed the nature of capitalism. Considers the prospects of capitalism, outlines the essential features of a capitalist system, and stresses that capitalism can take many forms. Explores the concept of institutions, paying particular attention to the relation between states and markets, and workers and employers.
