A book by Martín Carbajo Núñez on Franciscan Economics (Economia francescana: una proposta per uscire dalla crisi) published by Editions Dehoniane Bologna in the series Theological Ethics Today will be presented on Thursday, May 15, 2015 , at 20:00, in the San José Parish  in Mestre (Venezia).


In this work the author presents the significant contributions made by the Franciscans of the thirteenth and fifteenth centuries to the understanding and orientation of economic processes. In the opinion of some scholars that contribution was paradoxically decisive for the establishment of a market economy . The author believes this information is useful in the search for solutions to the current economic and financial crisis.


The gathering and talk by the author is organized by the   A.R. Shalom cooperative, the Parish of San Giuseppe  and the Francescan Cultural Center  (Sant'Antonio Parish, Marghera). it will be moderated by doctor Fabio Poles, who belongs to the group of founders fo the School of Civil Economy (SEC), directed by Luigino Bruni.


The text is also available in Spanish - Crisis económica: una propuesta franciscana published by Biblioteca de Autores Cristianos in the series Estudios ensayos - and in Portuguese - Crise económica: uma proposta franciscana, published in the Editorial Franciscana in the series Temas de espiritualidade Franciscan.
