Olsztyn - Poland - June 11-12, 2018

 
 
 
 
Place: Olsztyn - Polonia
Date: 11/06/2018
PUA On June 11-12, 2018, prof. Martín Carbajo Núñez, OFM, will attend a symposium organized by the università di Warmia Ymazury, in Olsztyn (Poland) on  "The family business in the context of the integration of humanities, economics and economy". Prof. Carbajo will talk about: "The importance of family relationships for the economic development of society" .

Abstract of prof. Carbajo's dissertation:

I will try to illustrate the importance of family relationships for the economic development of society . Pope Francis says that the human family "is the first and most important school of mercy" . Also in the economic field, we need to put into practice this kind of merciful relationships which privilege being over having and do not appeal to an invisible hand to justify the indifference towards humans and nature.  
The first part of my dissertation will show that, in many aspects, the global current economic system is devoid of family relationships. Having assumed a negative anthropological vision, the market is considered a battlefield of selfish interests, in which everything is subordinated to efficiency. In contrast with this technocratic and conflictual paradigm, Catholic Social Teaching stresses the importance of fraternity in the economic realm. The third part of my talk will present some current initiatives that show the importance of relational goods for an integral development.
