About this title


This is the first theological critique of political economy and global capitalism written by a political economist with long experience in the oil industry. Wilde argues that there are great parallels between today's Iraq and first century Palestine, where Jesus' challenge to the Roman Empire and the Jewish religious establishment led to his execution. He explores how the Iraq War reveals what he calls the global capitalist empire at work and argues that the spin that took Britain to war also tells us much about the New Labour project. Wilde critically assesses the Christian discontent with global poverty, by placing arguments about debt and trade in the broader context of global capitalism, empire and war. He argues that Christianity can only speak with competence about issues of social justice if Christians are prepared to face the realities of the political economy in today's world and to understand their backgrounds.

About the Author:

Dr Wilf Wilde is a development economist who worked in the oil industry for 3 years before working for 12 years as a stockbroker. He worked on utilities privatisations at Merrill Lynch and on emerging markets at ING-Barings. Since 1997, he has co-founded a Christian led inter-faith regeneration agency, Employment Focus, now working with Black majority churches, migrants to London and in Afghanistan.
