The basis of biblical economics in scripture is Genesis 1:26-28. God created man and said that man should exercise dominion and subdue the earth; that the whole of the earth was to be brought under the dominion of God through man. God created an estate, the Garden of Eden, and set man in it. That was to be a pattern whereby man was to learn how to develop things under God, and then the whole world was to be subjected to that pattern.
