Now in its third year, this seminar cosponsored by CREDO is designed as an introduction to and immersion into Catholic social thought for graduate students and faculty in economics, finance, or related fields. Participants will cover foundational principles in Catholic social thought starting with the human person, dignity, freedom, subsidiarity, solidarity, and the common good, and moving toward applications of these principles to conceptual understandings and ethical considerations involving economic topics such as utility theory, firm and business ethics, wages, markets, globalization, poverty, and development. Participants will delve into social encyclicals, secondary sources, and relevant economics texts. The course will be lead by economists Martijn Cremers, Joe Kaboski, Mary Hirschfeld and moral theology professor, Fr. Martin Schlag.
