The religious elites developed a mutually beneficial perpetuate power.

This book is an attempt to understand some of the most important issues that have emerged in the interface between religion and society in recent decades. What is the role that religions such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism play in the public sphere today? How have governments established in the name of religion fared in matters pertaining to governance? What are the forces responsible for the shift towards religion as the principle conduit for reform and protest in certain societies in Asia? Is the religious worldview and are religion values relevant to the resolution of the major crises confronting humanity today - from environmental degradation to the economic meltdown? What sort of transformation will have to take place within religion itself if it is to serve as a spiritual-moral compass in a world that is moving inexorably in the wrong direction? These are some of the questions that this book seeks to answer through both empirical analysis and theoretical reflections.

What emerges from these nine discourses are a cluster of ideas which reveals that while their histories and theologies may be different, the various religions have many similarities in their common commitment to the dignity and the well-being of humanity.

“Subverting Greed seeks to provide an ethical compass based on multi-religious insights that will stimulate dialogue, especially in college classrooms. In these settings, Subverting Greed can act as a counterweight to traditional economic texts that are sometimes blind to the human dimension hidden beneath theories and formulas. At a time when religion, in its fanatical, dangerously closed form has enabled acts of terrible destruction, interfaith partnerships among religious believers working for a better world are more Important than ever. Such a partnership gave birth to this book.”
