In his newest interview Pope Francis stressed the need for what he called the world’s “executive classes” to overcome egoism and pursue the common good in the fight against the coronavirus, and condemned the ‘culture of waste,’ saying abortion is not a religious, but human issue.
Pope Francis admits he is not an economist, but he is a pastor.
It’s a consistent finding of organizational studies that changing laws and individual personnel may be necessary conditions to prevent corruption, but they’re hardly sufficient. The real trick is changing the organization’s culture.
Corruption is an “ancient evil” that continues to plague the Catholic Church in different ways, Pope Francis said.
An eventual vaccine for COVID-19 would belong to the world and should not be hoarded greedily by countries hosting the lab or labs that develop it, Pope Francis said.
As more and more countries start to feel the economic pinch due to the coronavirus pandemic, Pope Francis urged business leaders to seek solutions that will not hurt employees and their families.
