Stabilizing the economy

The fiftieth anniversary of the American stock market crash of 1929 is being given much attention by the media. That event ushered in the Great Depression of the 1930's. Today, people are asking if it can happen again. They are wondering if the United States is due for another 1930's-type depression—one that might trigger a worldwide economic crisis; and if severe unemployment and deflation are the inevitable outcome of sharp inflation.

Christian Science brings powerful and decisive truths to bear on these concerns. It maintains that evil is not inevitable. God's continuity of good can be demonstrated.

The first statement in the Preface of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health, acknowledges the omnipotent action of "the sustaining infinite." Mrs. Eddy writes, "To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings." God is the sustainer of His entire creation, including man, and His supply consists of spiritual ideas, which flow continuously from the divine Mind, infinite good.
