Reviews

"This volume corrects the imprecision regarding economic and social realities that so often plagues Christian ethics. Finn's lucid accounts of social structures, markets, and power enables him to identify the moral responsibilities that consumers have for sinful social structures. Consumer Ethics in a Global Economy is required reading for the Christian ethicist." — Daniel J. Daly, Associate Professor, Boston College School of Theology and Ministry

"Finn's work again fills an important gap in Christian ethics, this time by carefully developing an accessible and compelling account of how markets place consumers into morally significant relationships with distant producers. Through its use of critical realism and concrete examples, this volume not only promises to clarify a number of ongoing debates within economic ethics, but also proposes a usefully fine-grained analysis of how moral agency is itself shaped by social structures such as markets." — Christina McRorie, Assistant Professor of Theology, Creighton University
