The economy is a vital component of every society. To a large extent, it determines the quality of life and even that of dying, it contributes to making human existence worthy or unworthy. Therefore, it occupies an important place in the Church's reflection, which looks upon men and women as people called to collaborate with God's plan also through work and through the production, distribution and consumption of goods and services. For this reason, from the first weeks of my pontificate, I have had the opportunity to deal with questions regarding poverty and wealth, justice and injustice, sound and perverse finance.
