Religions's moral compass and a just economic order: Reflections on Pope John Paul II's encyclicalcentesimus annus

Journal of Business Ethics 12 (12):901 - 917 (1993)
The purpose of Pope John Paul''s encyclicalCentesimus Annus (CA) is to propound the foundations of a just economic order and to sketch its essential characteristics. As such he essentially provides an orientation or moral compass for the political economy rather than a precise road map. This article first reviews the principal components of CA and then analyzes and evaluates its central contentions on both cultural and economic grounds.
