Abstract

This paper analyzes conflicting aspects of individualism, egalitarianism and complex equality. In the course of our analysis, matters dealing with capitalism and neoclassical economics or economic rationalism are examined, as well as the related rise of individualism and policies emanating from proposals of Friedrich Hayek. Then a theological response to poverty, dominance and inequalities is outlined. Adherence to altruistic Christian teachings will help resolve the values’ tensions faced by policymakers.
