Episode 20 – Our Money: From the Pulpit to the Street with Rev. Delman Coates

“We’ve been given the wrong answers to the right questions,” says Steve’s guest Reverend Delman Coates, founder of the new organization, Our Money. “As a faith leader, it’s time to reclaim a theology of economics.”

Rev. Coates recounts that being a pastor, he sees too many people who follow all the rules yet find themselves dislocated and struggling. He set out to gain a deeper understanding of the structural, systemic causes, which led him to Modern Monetary Theory.

Beyond the perceived differences between communities in SE Washington DC, Appalachia, or Ohio, the one thing that unites us is the reliance on money to buy goods and services, to keep a roof over our heads, and to provide for our families. Our Money advocates for more government investment in society’s priorities, preferring the creation of currency through public spending rather than private lending.

“As a faith leader, it’s time to reclaim a theology of economics.” Rev Coates believes we can move towards a moral economy that works for us and not against us. His eloquence and clarity will make believers of us all.
