    (Since Max Weber, there has been a debate on the impact of religion on people’s economic attitudes. Religion play a direct role over the individuals because it entails them to become elements of social aggregates that have internal patterns of organization and own goals, shaping with great power the individuals’ choices and purposes.

Abstract

Since Max Weber, there has been a debate on the impact of religion on people’s economic attitudes. Religion play a direct role over the individuals because it entails them to become elements of social aggregates that have internal patterns of organization and own goals, shaping with great power the individuals’ choices and purposes. We consider religion an endogenous element in the theory of economic growth. The importance of societal ideas and preferences, moral beliefs and the confidence in a market system affect the economic process in various ways.
