Economic Justice Trust

The excluded are still waiting for economic justice

By on September 7, 2021

“some people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world. This opinion, which has never been confirmed by the facts, expresses a crude and naïve trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power and in the sacralized workings of the prevailing economic system. Meanwhile, the excluded are still waiting.”
― Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium: The Joy of the Gospel
