An Asian Constructive Theology for a Triune Economy of Gift

image of Exchange

The globalizing economy is not only offering affluence to the elite but also a form of idolatry, in which the idol is ‘the golden calf of global capitalism’. In this article I attempt to inquire a God-talk which engages the challenge of global greed and stimulates solidarity for the people who make up the base of the economic pyramid — ‘a triune economy of gift’. I propose an Asian perspective of Trinitarian economy which explicates fragility, frugality, and solidarity as divine characteristics. In so doing, I explore some ecumenical documents and four different voices from Asia which assess structural evil: the theology of ajur-ajer of Father Mangunwijaya, the public theology of Felix Wilfred, the theology of God’s life and emancipation of Paul S. Chung, and the theology of multitude of Kwok Pui-lan. In this, I hope to contribute to global liberation theology.
