Religion is a big part of our society today. Whether you have a belief or not other people’s beliefs will most likely affect you. Therefore in this article we have set out to talk about the economics of religion and how it will affect your future career. If you are of some religious belief you most likely know they encourage you to be honest and a good upstanding citizen. Therefore a lot of employees and people tend to trust someone who is religious. However, this is not always the case. There are many times someone might seem religious but they are in face not.
The next major economics of religion I want to cover is that a religious group can provide great networking opportunities. Like it or not people are more willing to help out those who belong to their parish. While this is true I’m not saying you should go out and join any religion just to make connections. Simply that if you already belong to some sort of religious beliefs you should make sure you are taking advantage of every opportunity in your parish.
There is no doubt that although in many countries the number of conventional churchgoers is falling, there’s no doubt that religion still retains a prominent place in establishment of many. Religious discussion can be found on the internet as well in all sorts of areas, I personally found that I could watch BBC iPlayer on the iPad abroad using this tool, which meant I could watch some of the BBC’s religious broadcasts.
The cornerstone of the economics of religion discussion is that you should never talk badly about a religious beliefs in the company of others (or for any reason for that matter). Let me share an example with you. I once worked with a person who was talking about scientologists, mormons, and christians. He went on to discuss the question is mormonism a cult and other dubious topics. While he is free to share his beliefs he actually ended up offending many people at the table. This is an example of why discussion of religion is a sensitive topic no matter the audience.
