Ethics and Economics
Canada's Catholic Bishops on the Economic Crisis
by Gregory Baum and Duncan Cameron
A valuable introduction to the host of issues raised by the most-discussed political document of recent years.
GREGORY BAUM, a Catholic theologian with a world-wide reputation, explains the theological basis for The 1983 New Year's Statement, and shows that it is not a radical evolution of Catholic social teaching. Political economist DUNCAN CAMERON examines the validity of the bishops' critique, exploring such critical issues as unemployment and inflation.
Together, they provide a valuable introduction to the host of issues raised by the most-discussed political document of recent years.
