Did you know that, with our new website (www.marketsandmorality.com), you don’t have to be a subscriber to read content from the two most recent issues of the Journal of Markets & Morality? Now individual articles can be purchased for the meager price of 99 cents.

Certainly, it would be more cost-effective to subscribe if you want to read all of our content, but perhaps you would just like to preview an article or two before purchasing the whole thing…. Perhaps, given current financial crises, you would like to read Charles McDaniel’s article  “Reviving Old Debates: Austrian, Post-Keynesian, and Distributist Views of Financial Crisis” or Marek Tracz-Tryniecki’s article “Tocqueville on Crisis” from the most recent issue (15.1)? 99 cents. Or maybe you just can’t get enough of the debate about the compatibility (or lack thereof) between Catholic social teaching and libertarian economics? Well, now you can purchase the six articles from the Controversy section in our Fall 2011 issue (14.2), each for only 99 cents. Or perhaps you would like to read one of our stellar book reviews? 99 cents.

It’s like iTunes, but for high-quality academic articles instead of popular music.

Furthermore, this is an excellent opportunity for me to remind our readers that, with our new website (www.marketsandmorality.com), all editorials, even from the most recent two issues, are free (or perhaps I should say, “Priceless”?). For example, you could be reading Jordan Ballor’s editorial on “Business and the Development of Christian Social Thought” right now. Nothing is stopping you.

Ok. Enough shameless promotion. Back to reading “Settling the ‘Social Question': Three Variants on Modern Christian Social Thought” by Marinus Ossewaarde….
