Economics as If God Matters : Over a Century of Papal Teaching Addressed to the Economic Order Hardback
Part of the Catholic Social Thought series
In this revised and expanded edition of Economics as if God Matters, Rupert J.
Ederer brings forward to the present his classic assessment of how papal social teachings address economic questions from the end of the 19th century.
His survey encompasses close readings of Leo XIII's Rerum Novarum (1891), Pius XI's Quadragesimo Anno (1931), John XXIII's Mater et Magistra (1961), Paul VI's Populorum Progressio (1967), John Paul II's Laborem Exercens (1981), Sollicitudo Rei Socialis (1987), Centesimus Annus (1991), and Benedict XVI's Caritas in Veritate (2009).
Written for clergy and lay readers, as well as students and scholars of the Catholic perspective on the intersection of economics and society, Economics as if God Matters is a sophisticated review of the moral purpose of one's participation in the economic life of modern society.
