What hath Kuyper to do with Keynes? Bavinck to do with Böhm-Bawerk?
If these are questions that interest you, then look no further than the Acton Institute’s First Annual Academic Colloquium, sponsored by our “Journal of Markets & Morality.” This year’s theme is Neo-Calvinism and Modern Economics.
Join us for two panels of scholars presenting their cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research on the intersection between Neo-Calvinist social theology and modern economic science.
The event will conclude with a plenary lecture from Dr. Jordan Ballor, entitled “Is Homo Economicus Sovereign in His Own Sphere? A Challenge from Neo-Calvinism for the Neoclassical Model.” Ballor is director of research at the Center for Religion, Culture & Democracy and series editor of the Abraham Kuyper Collected Works in Public Theology, which concludes this year.
The conference will be held at the Acton Institute in Grand Rapids, Michigan, from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 8. The registration fee is $25, with a reduced student rate of $15.
