Abstract

This paper examines the roots of modern regulation in Judeo-Christian religious doctrine. It argues that acknowledging the need to balance regulation and deregulation is not the same as maintaining that all regulation is unnecessary. It makes references to common law in religious text and concludes that there is an agenda at work in the current political climate that is antagonistic to regulations, many of which are designed to safeguard life. It argues that this is a disconnect that merits correction, especially for those who care about not just our common law tradition but also the teachings of scripture.

Keywords: religion, regulation, corporate governance
