Religions influence all sectors of society. To a great extent, this is true for the Protestant Genevan Reformer John Calvin (1509-1564) with his global influence and impact. His work is still highly relevant to today's economy. In his writings he emphasized on equitable markets and fair interests. In politics, he was an early door-opener for democracy, and he approached science with an open minded curiosity. His ethics is deeply rooted in his faith in the merciful and guiding Christian God. All human efforts should serve the Glory of God.
