Christian Science Monitor A century ago German soci ologist Max Weber put forth a novel theory of economic growth In The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism Weber argued that Calvinist ideals fostered a disciplined work andsave attitude that acceler ated the creation of wealth The implication that Protestant economies outperform Catholic ones has drawn skepticism ever since But

found certain reli gious beliefs did contribute to economic growth Notably they concluded that a belief in hell was a slightly more potent economic spur than a belief in heaven Last year Niall Ferguson a professor of history at Har vard University examined the connections between faith and work ethic in light of divergent trends he found in the United States and Europe Religious belief in North America has been amazingly resilient amid big economic gains he says disputing the notion that wealthier countries necessarily become less reli gious But abroad Ferguson noted a decline in European work ing hours coincided with a decline in faith Americans dont in fact do better work than he wrote They just do more work A lot Between 1979 and 1999 Please see ETHIC Page A6 Mixed blessing
