What Is Faith-Based Investing? With Jerry Bowyer

Faith & Finance (formerly MoneyWise)

Christian talk radio with Rob West

February 12, 2020

Economist and Nobel laureate Robert J. Shiller once said, There's so much disagreement about investing, and it's because nobody really knows. That may be especially true for faith-based investing. As Christians, we want biblical principles to inform our investment decisions, but what exactly does that look like? Our host Rob West sits down with our own economist, Jerry Bowyer, to find out. Jerry Bowyer is the chief economist at Vident Financial. You can see him in action often on the Fox Business Channel. Our Christianity should inform both personal behavior and business practices, including investing. There are four strategies we see in the Christian investing discussion when it comes to dealing with the problem of sin and immorality in financial markets: avoidance of sin, embrace of the morally praiseworthy, active engagement on moral questions with the companies we invest in, or deferral of the question due to confusion and lack of consensus. Christians should not judge one another on such debatable issues. In today's show we also answer your questions: Could you offer some general financial advice to an 18 year old about how to get started on life?
