Delving Deeper – Redeeming Capitalism

Sunday, 16 February, 2:00 pm4:00 pm AEDT

“Capitalism is a subject, not an object. It possesses no hypostasis, imposes no will and reflects the values of the culture in which it resides; it is the result of countless individual and corporate decisions. For good or ill, the capitalism we have is the capitalism we have chosen; its redemption rests on the choices we are yet to make.”

Kenneth J Barnes

Dr Ken Barnes is Mockler-Phillips Professor of Workplace Theology & Business Ethics and Director of the Mockler Center for Faith & Ethics in the Workplace at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Boston.  Ken was a senior international executive for over 25 years and has worked with small-medium businesses, start-ups and as a mentor to young executives. He was also Director of Ridley Marketplace.
