The Seven Principles of the New Radicalism

In the following article, F.R. Hoare gives us seven principles to put our economic system back on the Catholic hinges that it was taken off of several centuries ago. These principles are called “radical” because they get to the root of the problem (the Latin word for root is radix). These principles would help to convert amoral capitalist economics to moral Catholic economics. Some of these principles are a bit deep and you will need to think, but the most important are simple: 1) The existence of God should be made the starting point of economic reasoning” and 2) The fundamental laws of economics are moral laws; Our Lord Jesus Christ said it a little differently, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His justice, and all these things shall be given you besides” (Mt. 6:33).
