AbstractIn this issue there are three papers, two of which originally appeared at the 1993 Study Group in Oxford. The first is an interesting assessment by Esmond Birnie of utilitarian-based economics from a Christian perspective, which asks some hard questions about the effects that economists may have on their world. The second paper by Donald Hay takes up the same theme of whether economists are safe let loose in the real world, looking in particular at the late-1980s UK spending boom. The third paper is by myself and reviews the literature on &amp;quot;corporatism&amp;quot;, its possibly Christian origins and whether it offers a worthwhile means of tempering the &amp;quot;excesses &amp;quot; of liberal, individualist free markets. The next ACE study group meeting will take place on Monday 4th July to Tuesday 5th July, 1994, once again in the beautiful surroundings of Jesus College, Oxford. Booking forms will appear in due course. Extrapolating the trend from the last three years we hope to fill all the available places at this next meeting. If you like to give a paper, or lead a discussion at the meeting (even if at this stage your ideas are embryonic) Donald Hay or myself would be delighted to hear from you. Finally, as always I am keen to hear from anyone who has a paper to contribute or would like to write for the Journal, and from anyone who has a found a book worth reviewing.
