Ora, la prosperità delle nazioni deriva specialmente dal buoni costumi, dal buon assetto della famiglia, dall'osservanza dello religione e della giustizia, dall'impostazione moderata e dall'equa distribuzione dei pubblici oneri, dal progresso delle industrie e del commercio, dal fiorire dell'agricoltura e da quelle attività, le quali, quanto maggiormente vengono promosse, tanto meglio favoriscono i cittadini (n. 26).

The British vote to leave the EU clearly has many fathers. A system of global financial capitalism that has exclusion and inequality in its architecture. The premature implementation of monetary union, which-lacking adequate fiscal or financial integration-magnified the effects of financial crisis.

Back in 1991, the late Richard John Neuhaus penned a now-famous op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, in which he argued that Pope John Paul II's latest social encyclical, Centesimus Annus, represented a decisive break with the past-a development of doctrine, even.

The long-awaited papal encyclical on the environment could have a significant influence on conservative politics around the world.
The world might just be talking about Francis' great treatise for years to come.
Are some of those anticipating the pope's message most in for a disappointment?
Il convegno internazionale promosso dalla Fondazione Centesimus Annus rifletterà sulle problematiche dello sviluppo umano alla luce della dottrina sociale
Enorme è la portata dell'incontro fra Papa Francesco e movimenti sociali avvenuto la scorsa settimana in Vaticano. Portata per certi versi superiore a quella del Concilio Vaticano II che pure aveva marcato una svolta epocale, rinnovando a fondo la vecchia Chiesa cattolica gerarchica e nei secoli fedele alle classi dominanti. Oggi siamo di fronte a
Dropping shares in fossil fuel companies might not make a huge difference on its own, but it can help lay the groundwork for other types of climate progress.

Distributism is the name given to a socio-economic and political creed originally associated with G. K. Chesterton and Hilaire Belloc. Chesterton bowed to Belloc's preeminence as a disseminator of the ideas of distributism, declaring Belloc the master in relation to whom he was merely a disciple.

Economics as we know it today is broken. Unable to explain, to predict or to protect, it is need of root-and-branch replacement. Or, to borrow from Alan Greenspan, it is fundamentally "flawed". But where do we look for inspiration in facilitating what is the mother of all paradigm shifts? Interestingly, the most insightful and strikingly... Continue reading ...
