The True Wealth of Nations

Stefano Zamagni (Contributor Webpage)

This chapter is a preliminary test of the fundamental hypothesis of the True Wealth of Nations project:“The economic and cultural criteria identified in the tradition of Catholic social thought (CST) provide an effective path to sustainable prosperity for all”. By adopting a history of ideas approach, it shows that in the era of civil humanism during the 13th through 15th centuries, the principles of CST were able to inspire and shape an institutional order, a civil economy, aimed at the common good.

Keywords:   Catholic social thought, sustainable prosperity, common good, capitalism, civil economy
