If there's one thing missing from Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson's economic agenda, it's details.
Carson's most widely discussed economic policies: establishing a balanced budget, reducing the deficit, replacing the Affordable Care Act, and implementing a flat tax rate, have sounded grandiose, but the lack of specifics on how he would accomplish these ideas hasn't stopped him from becoming the frontrunner in the GOP race for president.
According to the latest CBS News/New York Times poll, Carson is leading the large pack with 26% compared to Trump's 22% with Florida Sen. Marc Rubio in third place with 8%.

Whether the soft-spoken, retired pediatric neurosurgeon, who has never held a public office, is vague because he's new to politics or it's his political strategy -- millions of Americans will be watching the third Republican debate Wednesday night focused solely on the economy, where he will be asked to explain how he plans to tackle economic issues from jobs, to health care, taxes, retirement, and trade.
Carson, a Seventh-day Adventist, is running his campaign as an "outsider" to Washington and using his faith in God to not only capture the support of evangelicals and appeal to the party's religious base, but to shape his economic policies as well.
That might be the most concrete position in Carson's campaign: his faith. And it seems to be working, as more voters are connecting with the 64-year-old Detroit native.
Should we have "faith" in Carson's economic policies? Here's a closer look at what the U.S. economy might look like under a Carson administration (assuming, of course, that he could pass his agenda through congress, a tall order in this era of gridlock):
