Pope Francis and capitalism
Pope Francis’ negative view of capitalism is out of place. We live better, longer, healthier and especially more securely today, than ever, thanks to capitalism. How much regulation, taxation and equalization we need in today’s capitalist societies is for each country to decide, not the Pope. Pope Francis should worry more about church issues, such as birth control, the celibacy of priests and other issues.
An interesting read on capitalism and the dramatic decline of violence in our societies can found in Stephen Pinker’s new book.
