I grew up Catholic, but left Catholicism behind me when I began reading widely, learning Buddhist meditation, and taking philosophy and literature more seriously, as a young man. That said, as I’ve grow older, I can recognize a lot of value in the Catholic worldview, even if its theology may disagree with me.

“Cathonomics" is one area where we can agree, if this includes the common good, integral human development, integral ecology, and solidarity among its principles.



And here is perhaps my favorite:

The Universal Destination of Goods.

"The universal destination of goods is an overriding principle in Catholic social teaching, as it relates to economic ethics, and basically says that the goods of the Earth belong to everybody, without exclusion, without exception, not just to the rich."
