Topic: Moral Criticisms of the Market
Question/Prompt: This assignment requires you to read “Moral Criticisms of the Market” by Ken S. Ewert (found in the Reading & Study folder). Note that in his article, Ewert is defending the free market from “Christian Socialists.” He states their position and then gives a rebuttal. Do you agree with the critique of the market in Ewert’s article? Why or why not? Read carefully and offer cogent reasons. Your answer must be at least 250 words.
Consider the context of the article; the Berlin Wall fell months after the article was published. The USSR followed shortly thereafter.
Reply Prompt: For your reply, respond to at least 1 other student with a minimum of 150 words. Your reply must include a discussion on whether the author was right in his or her analysis in either agreeing or disagreeing with Ewert’s arguments.
