Pope Francis has picked up the message "economy at the service of the human person", contained in the Encyclical Caritas in Veritate by Benedict XVI, in his call for a "poor Church for the poor." To make our small contribution to this noble and holy cause, we have developed a course providing basic knowledge of the economy to interested students at the Pontifical Universities. Today, more than ever, it is necessary, on the one hand, to be able to properly formulate the Social Doctrine of the Church, and on the other, to be able to know how to manage efficiently the material goods available for Evangelization. The title of the course will be Economics for Ecclesiastics. The lecturers, of great international prestige, are specialists in their respective areas. The lecturer for the first and the third modules will be Lord B. Griffiths of Fforestfach, Vice Chairman of Goldman Sachs, who is also the coordinator of the whole activity.
Purpose of the Course
To provide an introduction to economics for students of theology and for those training to become priests: the course will provide tools for understanding contemporary economic issues and solving them in an ethical and Christian way. These ethical aspects will be included in each section.
The course is divided into three modules, each developed in two sessions of two hours each. The sessions will be given in pairs (1 & 2, 3 & 4, 5 & 6) on consecutive days between October and December 2014 and January 2015. The final exam will consist in a short essay.
