Due to restrictions put in place in response to the spread of COVID-19, this event has been postponed. We look forward to scheduling similar programming in the future.

Does this “economy kill?” Pope Francis denounces “throw-away cultures” and “economies of exclusion and inequality.” Does Pope Francis’s thought on the economy reduce to a Jeremiad? How does his economic vision align with or diverge from the teachings of recent other popes on the economy? How might his critiques be compatible with or improve upon a free-market economy and work towards greater human flourishing? Join for a discussion between international economists and a moral theologian on Pope Francis’s economic vision and what a response to his critique of our “throwaway culture” looks like in practice on an individual, communal, and global scale?
