Economic Analysis and Organised Religion

  • Economics
  • Religious Science


This chapter analyses some phenomena in organized religion from the point of view of economics. It is argued that religious activity derives from the individual's quest for sense and justification that molds institutional and other features of religious activity, as brought about by competitive forces. The underlying concern regards the interrelation of economic and cultural processes.
