Confronted with a choice between profitmaking and socially responsive behaviors, business executives are often caught in difficult decision-making binds. At the personal as well as the corporate level, the relationship of economics to faith presents dilemmas which are complex — legally, morally and financially. These dilemmas are discussed by twelve businessmen, scholars, attorneys and ethicists in The judeo-Christian Vision and the‘ Modem Corporation. A collection of papers based on a symposium at the University of Notre Dame, the book offers a wide range of informed and thoughtful approaches to the subject. It includes discussions of capitalism, the Protestant work ethic, the seculariza- tion of present~day economic activity, the resources of Scripture and the Talmud, and the legal responsibilities for modem Corpora- tions. Contributors: Elmer Johnson, James Gustafson, Kirk Hanson, Burton Leiser, Michael N ovak and others.
