Faith and Finances: How Religion Relates to Economic Welfare in the US
Posted: 29 Mar 2010
Religion influences moral beliefs and concerns about social morality, but religion also influences social and economic welfare. However, there is not a great deal of research on the nature of the relationship between religion and the economy, economic attitudes, social-economic well-being and other issues related to the idea of social justice. What we know about religion is limited also because there are few systematic examinations of religion and politics across the American states. For these reasons, I provide an empirical assessment of the impact of religion on various aspects of economic welfare in the US.
