The economics of religion and the economics of development represent two autonomous and relevant branches of the literature, both built on traditional and heterodox assumptions. Since the emergence of the paradigm of human development (1990) and its theoretical-political evolution in terms of sustainable human development (2000), they have been characterized by contaminations and cross-fertilization. Overall, and considering their overlapping, intangible factors such as religion have a relevant role as resources and/or intrinsic goals of subjective, relational and community welfare.
