Faith, Values and the Economy: New Survey Explores Economic Policy, Role of Religious Progressives and Conservatives
On July 18, the religion, policy and politics project at Brookings will co-host an event with the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) to release a new survey and accompanying report co-authored by Brookings Senior Fellows E.J. Dionne and William Galston and PRRI CEO Robert P. Jones, Research Director Daniel Cox, and Research Associate Juhem Navarro-Rivera. The 2013 Economic Values Survey tackles a range of topics, including perceptions of economic well-being and upward mobility, the role of government, how well capitalism is working, the importance and availability of equal opportunity, values that should guide government policy on economic issues, and specific economic policies. With its large sample size, the survey explores a range of fault lines on these issues, including racial and ethnic or generational divides. Additionally, the survey takes up the question of the existence and vitality of religious progressives, compared to religious conservatives, and examines the relationship between theological beliefs and the views of both groups on capitalism and economic policy.
What: Release of the Economic Values Survey, a new comprehensive national survey of Americans on faith, values and the economy.
