Civilizing the Economy Conference
A New Way of Understanding Business?
Conference - April 9, 2010
Pope Benedict XVI's recent social encyclical on the marketplace Caritas in Veritate (Love in Truth) made the front page of many top magazines and financial newspapers across the world. Obviously this new encyclical garnered the massive media attention for a reason and thus, deserves serious reflection by business leaders, academics, and religion scholars, Catholic and non-Catholic alike.
Because of this, Princeton University's Faith & Work Initiative is hosting a conference to consider the practical and theological ramifications of Pope Benedict XVI's recent encyclical on the marketplace, Caritas in Veritate (Love in Truth). The conference, "Civilizing the Economy: A New Way of Understanding Business Enterprise?" will be held at Princeton University on Friday April 9th. We will use the Pope's new encyclical as a springboard for a constructive conversation about religion, ethics, and the marketplace. Will you join us?
For those of you interested in faith, ethics, and the marketplace - this conference is for you. The conference is designed to gather a mixture of thought leaders from the realms of business, academia, and religion, allowing them to engage each other and the attendees. This rare combination of leading marketplace practitioners and scholars will offer insights into the practical and theological impact of Pope Benedict XVI's relevant yet provocative encyclical.
The date of the conference is Friday April 9, 2010. Registration is free.
