Introduction: Can a Christian Be a Capitalist?
Can't We Build a Just Society?

What Would Jesus Do?
The Piety Myth (focusing on our good intentions rather than on the unintended consequences of our actions)
Doesn't Capitalism Foster Unfair Competition?
The Zero-Sum Game Myth (believing that trade requires a winner and a loser)
If I Become Rich, Won't Someone Else Become Poor?
The Materialist Myth (believing that wealth isn't created, it's simply transferred)
Isn't Capitalism Based on Greed?
The Greed Myth (believing that the essence of capitalism is greed)
Hasn't Christianity Always Opposed Capitalism?
The Usury Myth (believing that working with money is inherently immoral or that charging interest on money is always exploitive)
Doesn't Capitalism Lead to an Ugly Consumerist Culture?
The Artsy Myth (confusing aesthetic judgments with economic arguments)
Are We Going to Use Up All the Resources?
The Freeze-Frame Myth (believing that things always stay the same-for example, assuming that population trends will continue indefinitely, or treating a current "natural resource" as if it will always be needed)
