Subverting Greed seeks to provide an ethical compass based on multi-religious insights that will stimulate dialogue, especially in classrooms. In these settings, it can act as a counterweight to traditional economic texts that are sometimes blind to the human dimension hidden beneath theories amd and formulas. At a time when religion, in its fanatically dangerous closed form has enabled acts of terrible destruction, interfaith partnerships among religious believers working for a better world are more important than ever. Chapters include: Religious conscience & Global Economy: An Eastern Perspectiveon Sociospiritual Activism by Swami Agnivesh Judaism & Economic Reform by Norman Solomon God's Household: Christianity, Economics and Planetary Living. By Sally McFogue Globalization & Greed: A Muslim Perspective by Ameer Ali
In the preface to Subverting Greed, Daisaku Ikeda says. "In our world today, as the powerful forces of the global economy daily exacerbate the crises of global injustice and poverty, all individuals, communities, and corporations are called upon with increasing insistence to rise above the cold logic of the market to demonstrate new models of creative coexistence." This books is an attempt by scholars from seven religious traditions to do just this. Ifi Amadiume does so from an African Igbo perspective, Swami Agnivesh from a Hindu, David Loy from a Buddhist, Zhou Qin from a Confucianist, Norman Solomon from a Jewish, Sallie McFague from a Christian, and Ameer All from a Muslim perspective. Paul F. Knitter introduces the book and provides a Christian perspective on these matters, and Chandra Muzaffar offers concluding reflections.
