Just Money: How Catholic Social Teaching can Redeem Capitalism

Just Money: How Catholic Social Teaching can Redeem Capitalism

Clifford Longley lays out a fresh approach to economics based on Catholic Social Teaching

In this essay, respected journalist and commentator Clifford Longley points to a way forward. With the long–standing and highly esteemed model of Just War theory in the background, he unpacks the theory of Just Money. Drawing on the extensive and detailed tradition of Catholic Social Thought – a tradition with roots in classical philosophy and Catholic teaching that is accessible to people of all faiths and none – Longley sets out an alternative vision. 

The answer is not to abandon the business economy but to humanise it, thereby making it fairer, more efficient and user–friendly, never forgetting that, like the Sabbath, the market was made for man and not man for the market.
