Finance, Globalization, and Morality: A 21st Century Challenge

Time: 4 December 2008
Venue: Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, Rome, Italy

The global economy is in crisis. In a short time, once powerful banks have crumbled, and recession looms as a reality across the world. Reflecting on this crisis, the 2008 Novak Award winner, Professor Carlos Hoevel of the Catholic University of Argentina will deliver a paper entitled "A Rosminian Vision for the Post-Crisis Global Economy".

Responding to Prof. Hoevel’s paper will be Rev. Umberto Muratore, who currently serves as Director of the Centro Internazionale di Studi Rosminiani and is the official Procurator for Antonio Rosmini’s cause for canonization.

Blessed Antonio Rosmini Serbati (1797 - 1855) was an Italian Roman Catholic priest and one of the most influential philosophers of his time. He founded a new religious order – the Institute of Charity – commonly known today as the Rosminians. Blessed Rosmini was the author of several works, including the famous and controversial The Constitution Under Social Justice, recently published for the first time in English and for sale in the Acton Bookshoppe.

  • Simultaneous translation in English and Italian will be available at the conference.
