Alternatives to Economics outlines the Christian thought system and its value as an alternative to secular social science in the development of socio-economic policies. Co-authors, Clive and Cara Beed demonstrate how the Christian thought system could be applied to issues such as distribution of wealth and the growing unemployment problem. The Christian thought system provides an alternative way of describing, explaining, and formulating policies for socio-economic matters from that of secular social science. Alternatives to Economics finds the current state of economics severely flawed, with no set of value-free, objective "tools" that can be used to analyze the economy. This book seeks to present these Christian thought system "tools" to both Christians and non-Christians.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is the most thoroughgoing exposure of the sheer irrationality of the naturalistic assumptions of modern economics so far achieved. The authors also begin to take further the development of a Christian economic thought into the realm of real, practicable proposals. -- John Milbank, , Professor of Religion, Politics and Ethics, University of Nottingham
In many journal articles over the years, Clive and Cara Beed have constructed a strong and appealing line of argument about the integration of Christianity and economics. Finally, all of this material is collected between a single set of covers. This collection is indispensable to the serious study of the faith and learning issue in our discipline. I congratulate the Beeds on their achievement. -- John P. Tiemstra, Professor of Economics, Calvin College and co-author of Reforming Economics: Calvinist Studies on Methods and Institutions
At the vanguard of efforts to develop a Christian understanding of the economy have been Clive and Cara Beed. The real gem in Alternatives to Economics, the reason it will become the seminal book on viewing the economy from a Christian perspective, is the Beeds insistence to ground the analysis of economic questions in a biblical perspective. Alternatives to Economics is an important and necessary step in the effort to create an economy which protects human dignity and promotes the common good. -- Charles M.A. Clark, Professor of Economics, St John's University
