As a Presbyterian minister and theological educator, the blogger decided to pursue Studies in Economics as part of a personal preparation for lectures suitable for local churches, Bible schools, and seminaries. The three related subjects dealt in this blog include Austrian economics, libertarianism, and Christian economics.
The blogger decided to study the Austrian school of economics as a result of several influences. His exposure to financial education in 2009 led him to the study of Robert Kiyosaki’s books, who introduced to him, Edward Griffin, the author of Creature from Jekyll Island. This influence was strengthened by his exposure to the ideas of US Congressman Ron Paul and Peter Schiff, a financial commentator. Gary North is the final influence that sealed his decision to do personal research on the works and impact of Austrian economists.
With the present global economic crisis, the blogger sees the answer through an intellectual movement that will expose the fallacy of conventional answers. On the other hand, the blogger also anticipates that churches and the academe, religious leaders and educators, will search for alternative answers for what is really going on in world economy. In that search, the blogger believes that the intellectual labors of both the Austrian school and the libertarians for several decades will gain new attention, appreciation, and will gradually replace mainstream consciousness.
