What does Pope Francis add to the business debate?

Bill Bowman

For all the attention he has generated in the world press, perhaps the most neglected or misunderstood area of Pope Francis' teachings is his view toward the world of business and its impact on society. It is of vital importance that we be among those who can explain his views as well as Catholic social teachings about the world of work. Bill Bowman is uniquely qualified to speak to us on this issue.
