NEW YORK — Brian J. Grim, Ph.D., author of The Price of Freedom Denied and president and founder of the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation (RFBF), presented an information-rich argument that faith is good for the economy, and, unless you are in the bullet and bomb making industry, peace is good for business.
Despite countertrends in the U.S. and elsewhere, Grim found while at the Pew Research Center that “the world is overwhelmingly religious or religiously affiliated. More than 8 in 10 people today have a faith, and that is predicted to increase. The world’s population of religiously unaffiliated is projected to shrink.”
