Open up the Bible to Genesis and we see the economics of past active today:

"And god blessed them, and god said unto them, be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air and over every living thing that moveth upon earth" ( Genesis 1:28).

Has believing in our apparent "expulsion" from the garden of Eden made us reclaim and tame what we consider rightfully ours? Nature is, after all, considered to be an "unlimited" resource in both the Milton Friedman's "Chicago School plus Keynsian economic doctrines, - a garden of bounty to be exploited at all cost. (Friedman won - Marx lost....)

If we put morals to one side (e.g. murder, cheating etc.): are our economic policies of today founded on the Judeo-Christian teachings of the past?

If so, we are consumers who are unwittingly practicing Judeo- Christianity, are we not?
