The schedule for the Centre for Theology and Philosophy’s conference, ”Christian Social Teaching and the Politics of Money: An International Conference on Religion and the Recession,’ has been posted here. The idea behind the conference is compelling, as is the attempt to address the issue from a variety of perspectives. Including economists and politicians in the list of speakers is to be commended.
Less commendable is the fact that Philip Goodchild is not giving a keynote address. It seems ridiculous that someone who has written two challenging and well received books isn’t afforded the time to outline his challenging position. Oh well. It’s sure to be an interesting mix of Redy Toryism, leftism without the call to action, and people pretending that conservative religious movements don’t often lead to fascist positions.
