Brilliant ideals are fruitless if no effort is made to implement them, while actions can have no useful result unless guided by ideals. Thus a balance and an interplay between goals and actions are necessary. This article attempts to relate the principles and objectives (as we imperfectly understand them) of a “Bahá’í economic system” to current conditions and opportunities, and suggests a number of topics for further research.
This revised article first appeared in the now out-of-print Bahá’í Studies Notebook (“Towards an Ever-Advancing Civilization”) 3.3/4 (1984); 39–52.
