Christianity, Islam and Socio-Economic Development in Ethiopia

Abstract: 

<p>Despite its tremendous potential in human and natural resources, Ethiopia remains woefully underdeveloped. It continues to be among the poorest nations in the world. This paper attempts to show that an important engine for development lies in harnessing the socio-economic paradigm endemic to the people of Ethiopia. This is the socio-economic model arising from the Abrahamic Belief System (ABS) -Christianity, Islam, and Judaism - to which the vast majority of the Ethiopian people adhere. A delineation is made of some important aspects of the socio-economic landscape of ABS with a view toward discussing its instrumental value in economic policy formation</p>
