THE ACQUSITIVE SOCIETY
Share this item:
The Acquisitve Society, written by a distinguished social and economic historuan, examines the role of religion in the rise of capitalism. Arguing that material acquisitiveness is morally wrong and a corrupting social infuence, the author draws upon his profound knowledge of labor and politics to show how concentrated wealth distorts economic policies. Colorful but credible, this study offers a timeless vision of alternative means toward a just economic, social, and intellectual order.
