About this item

Contributed by economics, theology, and other scholars from the US and Europe, the 13 essays in this volume apply ideas from Catholic social teaching, particularly the idea of solidarity, to capitalism and the free market. They discuss theoretical aspects, namely person-centered ethics, the ethics of the business firm as an institution, the anthropological visions underlying the economic theories of Adam Smith, Karl Marx, and Ayn Rand and the importance of the Christian view of the person, and the role of love in enterprise. They then address the relationship between justice and charity, a Catholic model of economic organization, and Pope Benedict's legacy to social ethics in the economic realm; specific models of applied ethics in economics, including a social market economy and work-family balance and corporate social responsibility; and specific aspects of business life, including cooperative and benefit corporations and business education.
