Cedarville University will host a seminar entitled, The Poverty of Nations, on Tuesday, Sept. 2, with special guests Wayne Grudem, Ph.D. and Barry Asmus, Ph.D., co-authors of “The Poverty of Nations: A Sustainable Solution.” The event will be held in the Dixon Ministry Center at 7 p.m. and is open to the public.
Grudem and Asmus are nationally known for their economic and biblical perspectives. Asmus is a senior economist with the National Center for Policy Analysis, and Grudem is a research professor of theology and biblical studies at Phoenix Seminary.
According to their book, Grudem and Asmus believe the solution to solving national poverty is in a comprehensive development plan that integrates the principles of a free market system with biblical teaching on social ethics. Through personal freedom, the rule of law, private property, moral virtue and education, Grudem and Asmus believe there is a clear path for promoting economic prosperity and safe-guarding a country’s long-term stability.
