Spirituality, Religion and the Functioning of the Economy

A paper by Laszlo Zsolnai entitled “Spirituality, Religion and the Functioning of the Economy” was published in the Journal for the Study of Spirituality (2022, Vol. 12, No. 1, pp. 1–7).

This paper describes the background to and focus of the research program being undertaken at the Corvinus Institute for Advanced Studies of the Corvinus University of Budapest. The “Economy and Religion Program” aims to explore and study the multiple roles that religion and spirituality play in the functioning of the economy. The program focuses on contemporary issues of capitalism in relation to ethics and morality; ecology and sustainability; and social inequality and cultural diversity. It is intended to foster a spirit of open dialogue that seeks collaboration across disciplines, cultures, and faith traditions.
