  • Making Moral Sense of the Financial Crisis
    Hadas, Edward

    What does the Catholic Church have to say?

    As markets struggle to make sense of the deepening recession, many people are seeing their lives radically changed, and are looking for answers.

    - How did we get into this mess?
    - What principles did we forget that allowed things to get so bad?
    - Where do we go from here?

    Making Moral Sense of the Crisis
    So what does the Catholic Church have to say that could assist the general effort to restore sanity to the economy? The Churchs teaching on society has been described as one of its best-kept secrets. This body of ideas has been developed in response to the social problems of modern times, and is starting to come into its own.

    In this new publication, Edward Hadas, Catholic author and financial journalist, looks at questions to do with morality and the markets, and offers some sane and stimulating answers.

    - Is there such a thing as greed in the financial markets?
    - Why are banks far less regulated than passenger jets, even though far more lives are destroyed when one fails?
    - How does human effort and enterprise create wealth? And how is the banking system the foundation for this?
    - What common-sense rules have the bankers been ignoring for too long?

    Hadas concludes with A Moralist Manifesto, to suggest a way forward.
