Laurence R. Iannaccone has applied economic insights to study denominational growth, church attendance, religious giving, conversion, religious extremism, and other aspects of religion and spirituality. His articles have appeared in many academic journals, including the American Economic Review, the Journal of Political Economy, the American Journal of Sociology, and the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion. His current work includes empirical studies of religious trends, computational models of religious dynamics, and the economics of sectarianism. Iannaccone founded the Association for the Study of Religion, Economics, and Culture, and directs Chapman University’s Center for the Economic Study of Religion.
