Dr. Shawn Ritenour on Economics and the Bible
I was privileged to interview Dr. Shawn Ritenour on the topic of how the Austrian School of economics correlates to the Bible.
Dr. Ritenour shares his Christian testimony that brought him from an eclectic background to an elder in the OPC.
As a young man he stumbled on a book entitled Human Action by Ludwig von Mises that opened his eyes to a passion for economics.
Dr. Ritenour gives his insider experience from working at the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics.
We discuss topics from Austrian economics as God’s “common grace” to a Christian economist’s view of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr. Shawn Ritenour current serves as a professor of economics at Grove City College and is a member of the faculty in the Foundation for Economic Education Faculty Network. He also is a scholar for the Ludwig von Mises Institute. He formerly worked for two years at the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics.
He holds a B.A. in Economics from Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa, and a Ph.D. in economics from Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama.
He is the author of the book Foundations of Economics: A Christian View.
He has authored articles for mises.org.
