Modern Economics Comes From Atheists

Not surprisingly, only one group of Americans is consistently resisting this massive cultural change in our values. Only they possess the faith to forego short-term snake-oil fixes in order to ensure the long-term fiscal and social health of society. …only America’s religious conservatives, both Jewish and Christian, possess the spiritual muscle to attack the malevolence at its root, which is the secular tendency to ignore the invisible. No wonder that Adam Smith and most of the other fathers of modern economics were God-worshiping Christians. No wonder that Keynes and other big-spending fathers of economic modernism were atheists.

Rabbi Daniel Lapin, "America's Real War," pg.245-246
