God's Economics: Principles for Fixing Our Financial Crisis (eBook Shorts)
Long before bitter arguments over raising the debt ceiling embroiled Congress, the economy suffered from another quiet but major default—a moral deficit that bankrupted the common good. America has defaulted on its economic trust, and temporary fixes and prolonged deadlines will not repair the damage.

Where to buy it:
Jim Wallis shows that God requires a different kind of economy—both globally and domestically—and provides principles that should guide economic policy matters, including clarity, transparency, accountability, and protecting the common good against private greed. Our financial institutions require real reform, but so do our own economic choices, desires, and demands, for they have far-reaching consequences. Wallis explores things we can all do to help fix the financial crisis and suggests making "Ten Personal Decisions for the Common Good."
