On Corruption, Freedom, and Intellectual Entrepreneurs: An Interview with Alex Chafuen

Dr. Chafuen discusses how a Christian theological-philosophical anthropology can help to make sense of corruption (economically and politically) in a society and how that dimension can support the work of economists and other social sciences seeking to interpret the causes, conditions, and consequences of corruption. We also discuss the work of the Atlas Economic Research Foundation, the importance of “intellectual entrepreneurs” in a society and the possibilities and challenges that “think tanks” face. There is some valuable and fruitful work to be done on the moral and economic realities of corruption, especially when collaborated as interdisciplinary work between philosophers, theologians, economists, and social theorists.
