Abstract and Keywords

The concepts of social capital and human capital are by now rich and extend beyond economics to management, human resources, political science, and sociology. They each operate at individual, corporate, societal, and global levels. Spiritual capital has come to prominence in recent years due to the combination of three related trends: the failure of secularization/modernization theories to account for reality; a rise in religiosity globally; and, the lack of ethics and virtue evidenced in the financial crisis and an ongoing plague of corporate scandals. Conceptions of spiritual capital on offer range from those by Fogel to Coleman to Berger and Putnam and more regularly in the economic and social science literature and popular accounts.

Keywords: interdisciplinary, economics, theology, religion, Christianity, spiritual capital, human capital, social capital
