The 75th Frankfurter Buchmesse, the largest trade show for books, was held every year in Frankfurt, Germany. For worldwide business and trading, it is regarded as the most significant book fair on earth.
The Frankfurt Book Fair celebrated its 75th anniversary, celebrating literary and cultural diversity. With a series of activities prepared, one of the most anticipated this year is the chosen country to be the guest of honor, which is Slovenia. The country will present not just its diverse, unique qualities as an attractive place to travel but also as a country with a rich literary tradition.
This year, Citi of Books joined the largest book fair in the world. We were excited to present books written by our distinguished authors. In our assigned booth, a range of books—from fiction to nonfiction—would be on exhibit. A book included in the display was “Christian Economics: The Integration of Capitalism, Socialism, and Laborism” by Dale Anthony Pivarunas. Also, aside from the book gallery, the author’s business cards were distributed during the event.
Dale Anthony Pivarunas has four degrees: a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, a bachelor’s degree in theology, a master’s degree in business administration, and a master’s degree in operations research. He has experienced four layoffs in his career, with accompanying periods of unemployment. He has worked two jobs at a time to provide for and support his family. Mr. Dale spent the last ten years studying, reflecting, and researching the topics covered in his book.
How is the Christian mandate to love your neighbor as yourself to be applied in business, economics, and politics? In what way does God want people to act within their jobs, their businesses, and their business transactions: treat tenants, other businesses, subordinates, and their employees; market their products and services and set prices; monitor the quality and safety of their products and services; and so on?
“Christian Economics: The Integration of Capitalism, Socialism, and Laborism” promotes justice, fairness, balance, cooperation, and mutual respect within business, economics, and politics and is based on three principles: good is to be done and promoted and evil is to be avoided; love your neighbor as yourself; and treat each human being with absolute dignity. Every business strategy, every business policy, and every business transaction need to be based on these three principles.
