ABOUT ACTON INSTITUTE
Watch & listen to this short excerpt from Rev. Sirico's recent book, Defending the Free Market.
In the face of fiscal irresponsibility—soaring deficits, sweeping new healthcare regulations, and an uncontrollable national debt—the Acton Institute offers a fresh and unique perspective. For over 20 years, the Institute has worked to connect economic freedom, free enterprise, and entrepreneurship with a vibrant Judeo-Christian moral culture. Through a wide range of research publications, visual media, and educational conferences, Acton reaches millions each year with its trademark synthesis of faith and freedom. In addition to common demands for limited government and lower taxes, Acton believes that liberty is best preserved when man's God-given dignity is recognized and respected. Only when our rights are rooted in something deeper—our intrinsic value as image-bearers of God—are they absolutely secure. Such a vision frees us from intrusive and utopian government initiatives, allowing us to produce wealth and share it with those most in need.
REV. ROBERT A. SIRICO is the president and co-founder of the Acton Institute. Rev. Sirico is the Pastor at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish in Grand Rapids, MI. His writings on religious, political, economic, and social matters are published in a variety of journals, including: the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, the London Financial Times, the Washington Times, the Detroit News, and National Review. Rev. Sirico is often called upon by members of the broadcast media for statements regarding economics, civil rights, and issues of religious concern, and has provided commentary for CNN, ABC, the BBC, NPR, and CBS' 60 Minutes, among others. In his new book, Defending the Free Market: The Moral Case for a Free Economy, Rev. Sirico shows how a free economy is the best way to meet society’s material needs. Only if we have economic rights can we protect ourselves from government encroachment into the most private areas of our lives—right down to our consciences.
