    How Economic Inequality is a Theological and Moral Issue.Douglas A. Hicks - 2015 - Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology 69 (4):432-446.
    Income and wealth inequalities in the United States have risen sharply over the past four decades and have reached levels that are unprecedented in the postwar period. Christian theology and ethics have much to offer public debates about inequality and can prompt public action to reduce those forms of inequality that limit human well-being and capability. This article reviews trends of economic inequality and develops a framework to address these disparities.

    Gender, Discrimination, and Capability: Insights From Amartya Sen.Douglas A. Hicks - 2002 - Journal of Religious Ethics 30 (1):137 - 154.
    This essay critically examines economist and philosopher Amartya Sen's writings as a potential resource in religious ethicists' efforts to analyze discrimination against girls and women and to address their well-being and agency. Delineating how Sen's discussions of "missing women" and "gender and cooperative conflict" fit within his "capability approach" to economic and human development, the article explores how Sen's methodology employs empirical analysis toward normative ends. Those ends expand the capability of girls and women to function in all aspects of (...)

    Self-Interest, Deprivation, and Agency.Douglas A. Hicks - 2005 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 25 (1):147-167.
    IN THIS ESSAY I ENGAGE THE DEBATE AMONG THEOLOGIANS, PHILOSOphers, and economists on the proper role of self-interest in the pursuit of economic well-being. Often, neither economists' use of self-interest nor critics' rejection of it is carefully specified. I consider conditions under which acting in one's self-interest is theologically and morally proper. Specifically, I argue that for socioeconomically disadvantaged persons, increased exercise of self-interest should not be regarded as sinful but as a fitting expansion of agency and well-being. Contextual factors (...)
