Capitalism and the Church

There are not a few people who believe the Church should fight against what they perceive to be the evils perpetuated and encouraged by the capitalistic economic model.  I, if you have not already guessed, am not one of those people.  I’m not going to wax poetic here on economic theories and the preferential option for the poor vs. subsidiarity and the propriety of state charity, as enjoyable as that could be (now where ever did I put those hot pokers for my eyes?).  Instead I merely wanted to link to an interesting article from Catholic World Report, an interview with Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, the head of the Vatican Bank.  Agree or disagree with his position on topics such as capitalism, distribution of wealth, globalization or other issues the article is worth a read if only to understand how at least one man has managed to align capitalism and Catholic ethics.
