Panel on The Economics of Pope Francis and the Caring Society held on April 3, 2018 at the 43 Annual APEE Meeting.
With his emphasis on service to the poor and care for the planet, Pope Francis commands the attention of not only the worlds 2.2 billion Christians, including 1.3 billion Roman Catholics, but also of people across the religious divide. In his 2015 encyclical, Laudato si, the pontiff called for an open dialogue about poverty and the destiny of what he calls our common home. This invitation is the inspiration for the Independent Institute book Pope Francis and the Caring Society. The panel will feature four contributors to the book.
