dc.description.abstractMy first task in the paper will be to illuminate why following genuine principles of one’s Christianity is so challenging in the contemporary economy, and then I will turn to a specific aspect of the challenge: the importance of simplicity of lifestyle and the rejection of luxury and consumerism in all spheres of our lives, including our business practices, an idea often overlooked in thinking about the consistency of lifestyle. Finally, I will suggest two, somewhat daring, ways in which that simplicity might be manifest by EoC businesses. These suggestions are meant to be challenging, but I will close by noting that both actually address really important problems in our current economic situation. Therefore, they are potentially effective business strategies, and not only utopian moral imperatives.|Keywords: simplicity, Economy of Communion, consumerism, lifestyle, luxuryen_US
