Centisumus Annus: "Economics with a Soul"

On the eve of the opening of the synod, the Acton Institute initiated a series of 10 conferences to commemorate the 15th anniversary of Pope John Paul II's 1991 encyclical Centesimus Annus. The subject was "Solidarity and Entrepreneurship: The Moral and Economic Foundations of the Free Society." Speakers included Italian Minister of Culture Rocco Buttiglione, Cardinal George Pell, archbishop of Sydney, and Carl Schramm, an entrepreneur and philanthropist. Zenit News Service reports.
