Catholic Economics, Part 6: How Much We’ve Lost - Aleteia

Catholic Economics, Part 6: How Much We’ve Lost - Aleteia | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Besides the good of the individual, there is a good that is linked to living in society: the common good. It is the good of “all of us”, made up of individuals, families and intermediate groups who together constitute society…To desire the  common good and strive towards it  is a requirement of justice and charity…The more we strive to secure a common good corresponding to the real needs of our neighbours, the more effectively we love them. Every Christian is called to practise this charity, in a manner corresponding to his vocation and according to the degree of influence he wields in thepólis. (p. 7)

Pope Benedict Defends Francis on Markets and Ethics - Codewit World News

Pope Benedict Defends Francis on Markets and Ethics - Codewit World News | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Pope Francis commented recently on accusations of Marxism stemming from anti-market language employed in Evangelii Gaudium. Unfortunately overshadowed by his new status as TIME’s Person of the Year (apparently one of the few things that trumps a papal interview these days), the remarks are concise and support the reading  of EG offered here, here, and here.

Michel Bauwens Invites Pope Francis to Help the Maker Economy

Michel Bauwens Invites Pope Francis to Help the Maker Economy | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Following Pope Francis’ surprisingly blunt homily about capitalism in November 2013, my friend and colleague Michel Bauwens had the brilliant idea of proposing a practical way for the Pope and Catholic Church to help address economic inequality:  let unused church facilities be used as hackerspaces, makerspaces and co-working spaces. This would help local communities reinvent the very idea of the economy with a different logic and ethic, while helping people meet real everyday needs and foster social solidarity. It’s an inspired idea that I hope the Pope and his advisors will consider.
