Economic Mobility and Peace Building Through Solidarity; A Baha’i Perspective
The presentation/discussion will go into some depth on Baha’i attitudes toward the role of religion and wealth creation. We will examine how religious groups can contribute to the sustained economic advancement of all their members, and their larger communities, as well as the significance and purpose of economic development in and of itself. After addressing the tenets of economic mobility within, between and outside religion, we will examine the integral function of economic stability in establishing cooperative peace.
