The Economy of Communion wants to promote an economic behavior that is an ideal and operational endeavour. It is not merely utilitaristic, but it aims at the integral and loyal promotion of mankind and of the society.
Therefore, although pursuing, in the market economy, the just satisfaction of own and other people's material requirements, the economic action becomes part of a complete anthropological framework. It thus addresses its own skills to the constant respect and valorization of the dignity of the person, be it companies employees, distribution networks, or customers.
The economy of communion operates in order to stimulate the passage of the economy and of the entire society from the culture of having to the culture of giving.
