Economy in question

The new issue of our journal Second Spring (issue 17), with a focus on the Economy and Catholic social teaching, is now available from Thomas More College. More about that soon, but in the meantime it is worth noting that a new journal, The Journal of Inklings Studies, has appeared in Oxford, with a first issue containing several important articles on Chesterton's (and Tolkien's) Distributism. Go HERE for the relevant issue. Meanwhile a series by John Medaille, the leading contemporary Distributist writer, is appearing on Imaginative Conservative. And see this interesting article on Catholic microfinance.
