Fordham University will host 4 online sessions about the Economy of Communion

Fordham University is hosting an online conference – 4 sessions over the month of October – that will explore what it means to build an economy that serves all, and will do it by looking at the example of the Economy of Communion (EoC) initiative.

You can review the details of the program and register for each session here.

Jeffrey SachsIn 2019, the Fordham University Business Roundtable redefined the purpose of a corporation to promote "an economy that serves all Americans." In 2020, the New York Times endorsed this redefinition of corporate purpose fifty years after Milton Friedman's editorial and amid protests for recognizing and including all. This year the Fordham University School of Law's Institute on Religion, Law, and Lawyer's Work and Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding invite you to explore how business can accomplish these humanistic goals.

The Economy of Communion (EoC) is an economic model created within the Catholic tradition positing that business exists for the benefit of all people who make up a workplace, workforce, and marketplace. Religion has long influenced the norms and practices in which business is conducted, iconically with the Weberian "work ethic" informing capitalism. This conference will explore the continuing evolution of its relationship with business from a religiously diverse lens over four one-hour sessions each Tuesday in October. There will also be two Thursday sessions for reflection and networking.

The first session will be held on October 5 on the topic of “The Business Purpose Question as the Question of PurposeLuigino Bruni CN rid
