More Background on Bishop Welby

I found this article from the WSJ helpful.  It features Bishop Welby's business background, which is an important feature in coming to a fuller picture of this truly fine Christian man.

I am bit more optimistic of the free market system producing capital as long as it stays accountable to a strong rule of law that inhibits fraud.  But I find his "rational choice" theory about markets very Christian.  Rationality is always relative to a bigger story of what is real, good and true.  People are more motivated by self-interest (not rationality), which would be okay if we were all saints.  And, of course, we are not.  Thus, the need for a strong rule of law to curb greed, fraud, etc.
