Reshaping Economic Principles

A resource titled The Economic Way of the Cross relates the message of Jesus’ way to the suffering of those who live under the weight of the globalized economy. The report was prepared by the Religious Working Group on the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, the Ecumenical Program on Central America and the Caribbean (EPICA), and Witness for Peace. The bilingual edition names 14 corporate, financial, political, legal, and military institutions that have constructed and administer the economy, and holds these institutions morally accountable.

The resource also includes commentary for group discussion or personal reflection. Copies are available for $6.50, plus $3.50 for postage and handling, from The Religious Working Group on World Bank and IMF, (202) 832-1780; EPICA (202) 332-0292; or Witness for Peace, 1229 15th St. NW, Washington, DC 20005; (202) 588-1471.
