Logic of Gift and the Meaning of Business

A very worthwhile set of conference papers from the University of St Thomas, published by the Vatican, has been made available online here. I haven't had a chance to read through these yet myself, but as I do I hope to expand this entry with comments.

"It is important for the Church to speak meaningfully to all people of good will within the business community especially during this current economic and financial crisis. While business ethics can move us forward in this reflection and practice, what is taking place in businesses today is not just the loss of will to do good, but the loss of meaning, and especially theological meaning, which ultimately demands more than what traditional business ethics and corporate social responsibility can offer."
