In the context, it seems as though he's referring more to the old "protestant work ethic" than perhaps to true Reformed theological inclinations.

Although, he certainly could, of course, be a Calvinist. But I think the context fits this a little better.

TaC, you're probably right. I just thought it was interesting because the context in which he stated it. Usually people refer to their Calvinism in the context of a theological discussion of soteriology.

I agree with TAC he does seem to be referring to the "protestant work ethic." It is strange that he would mention it in this way though.
