God and the Evil of Scarcity Moral Foundations of Economic Agency
God and the Evil of Scarcity: Moral Foundations of Economic Agency By Albino Barrera
2005 | 272 Pages | ISBN: 0268021937 | scanned PDF | 113 MB



In his celebrated Essay on Population, Thomas Malthus raised the puzzle of why a benevolent Creator would permit material scarcity in human existence, Albino Barrera revisits this question using Thomas Aquinas's metaphysics of participation and Sacred Scripture's invitation to covenant fidelity and kingdom discipleship as analytical lenses with which to examine the seeming incongruity of scarcity in God's providence. Barrera concludes that scarcity turns out to be a signal opportunity for economic agency to receive, internalize, and communicate God's goodness and righteousness within the human community. Written for theologians, philosophers, social scientists, and policymakers interested in the theological and philosophical foundations of economics, this study argues that precarious, subsistence living is not an immutable law of nature. Rather, such a chronic, dismal condition reflects personal and collective moral failure. In this carefully researched study, Barrera argues that scarcity serves as an occasion for God to provide for us through each other and that there are strong metaphysical and scriptural warrants for enacting progressive social policies for a better sharing of the goods of the earth.
