Free markets create broad levels of prosperity, yet at the same time can lead to increasing levels of income inequality. This course examines and interprets the U.S. income data, identifies the sources of income growth and variation, engages recent scholarship, and provides a Christian analysis of the distribution of gifts, talents, and income.
