Austrian Economics as Common Grace

I was blessed to present the Lou Church Memorial Lecture in Economics and Religion at this year's Austrian Economics Research Conference. My lecture was entitled "Austrian Economics as Common Grace." My goal in the lecture was to demonstrate how Austrian economics is one of the blessings God gave to mankind to assist in human flourishing. As such, the Mengerian economic tradition is a manifestation of God’s common grace. Because Austrian, causal-realist economics is a social science that is derived from realistic human action as the cause of all economic phenomena--a foundation that is congruent with the Christian view of man--it can be drawn upon with confidence by those who desire to promote human flourishing. There is no ultimate conflict between Christian doctrine and Austrian economic analysis. You can watch the whole lecture below:
