Toward an Economic Theory of "Fundamentalism"
AbstractThis essay outlines an economic approach to the study of sectarian religion, an approach that explains and integrates many of the empirical findings concerning contemporary "fundamentalism." It also seeks to identify assumptions that have biased previous studies, causing them to overstate fundamentalism's threat and misinterpret the causes of fundamentalist militancy.
