2011 Winner: Australian Christian Book of the Year Award

Ian Harper shares many insights gained from his professional career as an economist during an exciting period of world economic history.

Writing this book from his perspective as one of Australia's best-known economists and as a practising Christian, Ian demonstrates why economics is a good servant but a bad master. While the discipline of economics makes a valuable contribution to clear thinking about important questions that focus on humanity's material condition, it is not a philosophy for the whole of life - and was never intended to be.

This book will appeal to a broad range of readers, from those sceptical of economics to aspiring students of economics and those already involved in the profession.
