While I think your thesis comports well with Jewish philosophy of the Haskala (the Jewish enlightenment, say Mendelsohn), I doubt it had any influence on the rise of capitalism.

The chart which detailed evangelicals reminded me of the concept of "prosperity gospel." How does that concept differ or mirror your research on the influence of religion on capitalism.

You closed with some descriptive thoughts about why some people “vote against their economic interests”. Do you have any prescriptive thoughts about how Democrats might persuade such voters to vote for their economic interests, notwithstanding their religious views?
