Purpose & Prosperity 2011
On June 9-11, 2011, we hosted a conference here at the American Enterprise Institute entitled “Purpose & Prosperity: Exploring the Confluence of Faith, Economics, and Public Policy.”
Over 60 students from 15 schools, 20 faculty members, 4 AEI staffers, and 2 pink flamingos gathered in DC to discuss the relationship between values and capitalism. From Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon, we discussed issues including environmental policy, social security, how trade works, and the morality of democratic capitalism.

Here’s an idea that probably isn’t discussed too much on Capitol Hill: Evaluate fiscal reform in terms of biblical principles, specifically stewardship, prudence, and concern for the poor. That’s what the leadership of Evangelicals for Social Action and The Center for Public Justice recently encouraged in an open letter to the Christian Community. At this event, an “intergenerational” panel of prominent signatories will join with leaders who have criticized the letter to discuss and debate how Christians should think about government spending priorities.
