    All economic life should be shaped by moral principles. It includes an examination of the threat of global economic imbalances to world peace. It leads to a new vision of the unity of humankind, a reflection of God's triune intimate life. And these very characteristics, together with its efficiency as an instrument of power, give it an unequalled hold as an object of avarice.

    Who are the poor and vulnerable in our midst? Rerum emphasized the dignity of labor and the rights and responsibilities of workers. It is necessary to make it clear that His existence bears directly upon the solution of economic problems and to show how it does so. This is to the great harm of the State itself; for, with a structure of social governance lost, and with the taking over of all the burdens which the wrecked associations once bore.

The bishops have see this as a basis for the support of social welfare programs and of governmental economic policies that promote equitable distribution of income and access to essential goods and services. Thus, when the sheer destructiveness of the war itself came, making it certain that drastic economic and social reconstruction must be undertaken in Western Europe, it had become certain also that nothing short of a completely radical reconstruction on the basis of absolute morality could hold its own against the Bolshevik economic creed. Economic choices and institutions must be judged by how they protect or undermine the life and dignity of the human person, support the family and serve the common good.

Catholic thought in business and economics, vol. II book

In the second half of the 18th century economists began to teach openly that each man should pursue solely his economic self-interest. Furthermore, it inflicts direct injury on those whom it employs, by requiring them to work as automatons under great nervous strain, and by exacting a servile discipline in the factories, where men are herded and treated in the mass.

A class is called into existence whose sole business is to exploit the dependence of the system upon money, and which claims the right to create money for that purpose.

The State can in no way release men from this claim, which it did nothing to create. But mechanization, or the general employment of mechanical methods to eliminate the human element in production, inevitably tends to frustrate the very purpose for which it is advocated.

And, how to balance those interests because, after all, most of us are both? Whilst human laws might not impose sanctions for unfair dealing, divine law did, in his opinion.

If the training is to be enforced in leisure time upon a population with minds rendered vacant and nerves exhausted by their work as machine-tenders, the Leisure State would soon be indistinguishable from the Police State, and the leisure would be only an escape from one form of servitude to another.

This determinism was used to prevent philanthropists from trying to mitigate the system. In addition, it creates new vested interests in perpetuating and exaggerating those gaps which must be bridged by money. Of particular importance were his encyclical Laborem exercens and Centesimus annus in The global economy has moral dimensions and human consequences.

The law, therefore, should favor ownership, and its policy should be to induce as many as possible of the people to become owners.

The mystery of Jesus is a mystery of love. The bishops have see this as a basis for the support of social welfare programs and of governmental economic policies that promote equitable distribution of income and access to essential goods and services.

For example, the proper status of agriculture in any particular community can never be judged aright so long as the first consideration is that invested capital should obtain a high or a speedy return. As a working term, Distributism was considered more descriptive than anything else, and the two were essentially unsatisfied with it.

Francis McHugh states that in addition to the "vertical" dimension of subsidiarity, there is also a "horizontal" dimension which "calls for a diversity of semi-autonomous social, economic, and cultural spheres".

It asserts that free international trade alone is not adequate to correct these disparities and supports the role of international organizations in addressing this need. Moreover, if his status takes the form of ownership of means of production, he will be to that extent less dependent upon bargaining, or upon other persons or the State, or upon external circumstances of any kind, and under less pressure to violate his conscience in his working life.

Commentary on the Seven Principles as the Basis of an Economic System The seven principles formulated and briefly explained in the foregoing outline, form, when taken together, a connected whole, linking the fixed realities of the spiritual world and of human nature to economics in such a way as to provide the basis for a complete economic system.

It is necessary to make it clear that His existence bears directly upon the solution of economic problems and to show how it does so.Pope Francis wrote that “Business is a vocation, and a noble vocation, provided that those engaged in it see themselves challenged by a greater meaning in life.” Here in the Tim and Steph Busch School of Business at The Catholic University of America, we prepare you for a successful career in business and help you to find that greater meaning.
