The Economic Wisdom Project was originally produced by the Oikonomia Network. The Oikonomia Network is a theological learning community helping pastors equip people for whole-life discipleship, fruitful work and economic wisdom.

At the core of the Economic Wisdom Project are the 12 Elements of Economic Wisdom. We have designed them in the form of proverbial declarations, or “wisdom statements.” They are generalizations that are broadly applicable, rather than absolute laws for all cases. Communities rely upon statements of this kind to teach their shared moral wisdom – a practice modeled throughout Scripture, especially in the book of Proverbs. The Elements of Economic Wisdom presented here apply biblical wisdom to the modern economy.
