Apparently people on left and right are energized by this statement: TOWARDS REFORMING THE INTERNATIONAL FINANCIAL AND MONETARY SYSTEMS IN THE CONTEXT OF GLOBAL PUBLIC AUTHORITY.
Long title--but the message is not new or radical and is very consistent with the Catholic tradition. It condemns liberalism (which means worship at the altar of the free-market). It also decries the growing inequality, an equality that was just documented by the US Congressional Budget Office. It asserts ethics in technology, politics over economics (much as the anti-totalitarian Hannah Arendt did in her writings). This does not mean making government bigger or lesser. It does mean putting the public interest ahead of private profit. And it means making sure that government serves the public interest over private profit. And a global Church would definitely see that as a global interest--and so call for global institutions to facilitate this.
