The title of Benjamin Friedman’s new book Religion and the Rise of Capitalism alludes to Max Weber and R. H. Tawney who argued there was a strong causal connection between religious ideas and economic behavior. In contrast to Weber and Tawney, this is a book about the influence of religious ideas on economic ideas and the development of economics as a discipline, especially as they are relevant to American capitalism.
