There has also been much discussion recently about how our present Congress and the President are creating regime uncertainty again, which is hampering the adjustment process during our Great Recession. In his weekly column, Lee Wishing, provides evidence for this by relating the business advice of a very successful entrepreneur he knows. Summing up the effects of the bureaucratic administrative state we live in, he writes:
Man is a rational actor who reflects the image of God. Our federal government, however, is frustrating man’s natural desire to make sound economic plans.
In his piece he links to my book and passed along these kind comments:
Thanks Shawn! Your outstanding book “Foundations of Economics: A Christian View” opened my eyes to an incredibly important economic and moral concept: man reflects the image of God as a rational economic planner. It’s even clearer to me, in a profound way, that government meddling runs contrary to the God’s created order. Thanks for removing the scales from my eyes!
