ECONOMICS PROFESSOR SARAH ESTELLE AWARDED CHARLES KOCH FOUNDATION GRANT

Prof. Sarah Estelle has been awarded a grant from the Charles Koch Foundation to expand the Markets and Morality program founded in 2013-2014. In its inaugural year, Markets and Morality had 13 student members who met twice a month to discuss readings integrating economic thinking and the Christian faith. Student members also attended a formal dinner in East Lansing hosted by the Mackinac Center which featured a keynote presentation by John Mackey, founder of Whole Foods, on Conscious Capitalism and events at the Acton Institute in Grand Rapids. Many students participated in optional summer conferences and seminars as well. Last year, Markets and Morality hosted a visiting scholar for a public lecture on campus and co-sponsored a film screening and discussion for an interdisciplinary audience.

The expansion of Markets and Morality will provide more opportunities to student members, including conference attendance and travel during the school year, but also extend more opportunities to the Hope community. Plans are underway to build upon the speaker and film offerings of last year with a speaker series and multiple film events throughout the 2014-2015 year. The theme of this year's programming is inequality and poverty.

For more information on events or membership, contact Sarah Estelle at estelle@hope.edu.
