    The Free Person and the Free Economy: A Personalist View of Market Economics.Anthony J. Santelli, Jeffrey Sikkenga, Rev Robert A. Sirico, Steven Yates & Gloria Zúñiga - 2001 - Lexington Books.
    Foundations of Economic Personalism is a series of three book-length monographs, each closely examining a significant dimension of the Center for Economic Personalism's unique synthesis of Christian personalism and free-economic market theory.
