Pope Francis and the Holy See are advancing the concept of a social economy—in contrast to the current market economy—through messages that focus on justice and economics, the environment, and the fostering of a culture that advances human dignity. Georgetown gathered economic, cultural, religious, and other leaders to engage across disciplines during this day-long symposium. Participants discussed the economy's intersection with arts and culture, values, and issues of social justice.
