    Abstract

    This article first makes the case for responsible global capitalism, and the role of belief systems in advancing or inhibiting economic efficiency and socially acceptable behaviour. It then goes on to illustrate how the content and effectiveness of three contemporary elements of the global economy, viz , corporate social responsibility, the achievement of the millennium development goals and the opening up of centrally planned economies to market forces, are being, or might be, effected by the appropriate `bottom up' and `top down' incentive structures and enforcement mechanisms devised by the society of which they are part.
