In this episode we explore what sway one of the oldest institutions in the world has on economics. Pope Francis recently made a bold call to people and nations of the world. In a 184-page document, he urged us to veer from unbridled capitalism, lest we damn ourselves. What’s the impact? Is he a radical or traditionalist? To find out we speak with Devin Singh, professor of religion at Dartmouth and visiting scholar at Harvard; Sister Simone Campbell, a Catholic nun and executive director of NETWORK, a Catholic lobbying group; Nathan Schneider, a reporter for the New York Times, The Nation, and Catholic publications, and Father Stephen Gaertner, a punk turned Catholic priest.
