This collection of essays addresses the ever-growing gap between the escalating costs of welfare to meet a wide range of social needs, and the available resources. After setting out the economic parameters, these essays demonstrate that the issue is not purely economic, and that economics must interact with political philosophy, moral reflection, and theological inquiry to truly reflect the reality which shapes social and economic patterns. Topics include: economic realities, self and community, and cultivating civic generosity. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
