Trading Rand for Röpke

Joel J. Miller believes that Christian economics has more to learn from Wilhelm Röpke than it does from Ayn Rand. Contrasting the two he writes, “…unlike Rand, Röpke grounded his critique of socialism and his defense of free markets in a thoroughly Christian understanding of man and his world.” Mr. Miller points out that Röpke carried out his thought on the basis of Christian theology, anthropology, and spirituality. Rand, of course, rejected them all.
