Christian Economics, Mercantilist Style

Mike C. Went on. “He would have been diametrically opposed to a company whose workers need food stamps.”

Really? They need food stamps? Why do they need food stamps. I understand fully that they legally qualify for food stamps. So do 47 million other Americans. I fully understand that the food stamp program is the largest single subsidy that the U. S. Government offers to the gigantic agribusiness industry. I fully understand why Congress continues to make full-time workers eligible for food stamps. But I do not understand why Jesus would have made eligibility for food stamps a criterion for corporate ethics.
