Review based on an Advance Reading Copy. In Godonomics, church pastor Chad Hovind charts the brave waters navigating the choppy subjects of economics, politics, and religion - all at the same time.
As someone trained as an economist, my interest was quite piqued when I heard about this project and lucky me, a dear friend obtained an advance copy! Godonomics is divided into sections based on what God would say if he were to talk to various people.
So what would God say to Chad Hovind about Godonomics? As a fellow believer, I will say first off that I believe Hovind comes to mostly correct conclusions. I feel his theology is sound and that he gets to the main issue of debt and spending - the sin that flows from the human heart.
Particularly graceful handlings in the book include his explanations of several ancient Jewish economic practices and the question of their application today. He also does a great job addressing several distortions of the Gospel that tie socialism to Jesus' mission and message. And though I would strongly disagree on some of the finer points of his economic theory, the two roads we take end at the same place: Both our country and we as individuals have an overspending problem that originates in the heart and we need to allow Jesus to fix it.
That being said, I admit disappointment that he is relying on outdated and heterodox economic theory to advance God's will for our economy. Even if he comes to the right conclusions - which I believe he mostly does - it cheapens the message. First off let's talk about America and her national debt. While Hovind's desire to see both our nation and individual households control their spending and debt levels is admirable, he falls into the common political scare-trap of continuously telling us that we have borrowed excessively from foreign countries and "most notably" China.
We have indeed borrowed a lot of money. And we have indeed borrowed from foreign powers. But let's look at some percentages. So we are borrowing mostly from ourselves, not foreign countries. What's more, the fact that foreign powers want to borrow in American dollars means they have a great deal of confidence that we are going to pay them back, at least in the short term. While I agree with Hovind about keeping greed in check, this implication about the US is simply untrue.
America is a manufacturing powerhouse. The purported decline in US manufacturing is untrue, though the perception of its decline is likely tied to industries automating and the corresponding lower levels of employment in the sector. Also, America is absolutely huge in many areas of research and development. For instance, many new drugs and new software applications are developed here. To sustain the kind of consumption we have without forcing other countries to give to us without compensation requires we trade for it.
We are trading for it! In his chapters focusing on current trends in the church to distort the message of Christ, Hovind notes that terms such as "social justice" and "gospel" have been redefined and distorted from their original meanings. I would agree we should not want to redefine key words when discussing important matters.
And that includes Hovind's redefinition of the word "inflation". Here's Dictionary. While the word inflation MEANS generalized price increases which are truly ALWAYS connected to an increase or an anticipated in the money supply, it's not the case that all increases in the money supply lead to generalized price increases.
But Hovind uses the unconventional definition that increases in the money supply ARE inflation - whether or not they cause increases in prices. More on inflation and the money supply in my third section This redefinition forces Hovind to some startling and confusing conclusions.
He chastises Greenspan and Bernanke for using "dishonest scales" to "devalue the dollar" when both Fed chiefs presided over periods of low inflation. He also says, disturbingly, that "deflation the opposite of inflation can help the economy". Of all the time periods discussed in Godonomics, The Great Depression is the only one mentioned in which the US had deflation. Deflation is a sign of weakness and trouble in an economy, not a help.
Hovind also pigeonholes all economists into one of two categories creating a false dichotomy and head-scratching among those somewhat familiar with the subject : Economists, he asserts, are all either "Keynesian" or "Austrian" - I'm sorry but this is only true if Hovind is using the Austrian view and definition of things as he does with the word "inflation.
The culture of the department was such that only libertarian and conservative faculty members got hired. Not one of them was an Austrian. Not one of them was a Keynesian. I did have one professor tell me he was a "Market Monetarist".
Austrian economics in its present form is kind of a fringe movement. The best ideas it had in its early days have been absorbed into mainstream economics, and the distinctive characteristics that remain include, as we've seen, odd redefinitions of important words, and eschewing empirical work in favor of the pseudophilosophy praxeology.
An eye-opener! Godonomics is a truly brilliant breakdown of what the Bible says about the economy. It will change your life! Godonomics is a must-see if you care about your country. Congressman Chad Hovind reveals how the Bible supports free enterprise and entrepreneurship. Godonomics explains that God wants you to live a life of freedom to serve him, to provide for ourselves, and to bless others. He combines humor, philosophy, personal stories, and up-to-date research in everything he does.
