A Brief History of Thrift

Alison Hulme

Manchester University Press

Explores the Puritan practice of thrift and belief in predestination. Compares this to the Quaker practice of thrift for social justice and equality, and the Methodist practice of thrift based on stewardship and the responsibility to earn all one can, save all one can, and give all one can. Analyses the perceived link between individual liberty and religious commitment and picks apart the individualism and collectivism embedded within religious thinking on thrift.

Keywords:   Puritans, Quakers, Methodists, John Wesley, Individualism, Collectivism
