A Conversation with Anthony M. Annett

March 17, 2022
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. EDT
Location: Online Zoom Webinar

Can Catholic social thought provide the basis for a more just economic paradigm? How can failures of the neoliberal economic order like skyrocketing inequality and increasing economic fragility be rectified? In Cathonomics: How Catholic Tradition Can Create a More Just Economy (2022), Anthony M. Annett makes a persuasive case for a new framework for thinking about the global economy using the principles of Catholic social thought.

This event featured Annett discussing his new book and how Catholic social teaching and classical ethical traditions can be used to address current economic challenges such as inequality, unemployment and underemployment, climate change, and the roles of business and finance. He was joined by Berkley Center Senior Research Fellow E.J. Dionne, Christine Firer Hinze of Fordham University, and Kate Ward of Marquette University. Amy Uelmen, a Berkley Center senior research fellow, moderated the conversation.

This event was co-sponsored by Georgetown University Press and the Georgetown University Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs.
