Listen pal, I don't like you implying that I'm a follower of the capitalist Jew, von Mises.

I'm sorry that I offended you, sir. I did not mean to imply that you personally adhered to the Austrian school or any other brand of economic Liberalism. I intended only to defend +Williamson from charges that his advocacy of bank nationalization was Socialist. Rather, many so-called "Social Democratic" policies in fact align closely with preconciliar Catholic social doctrine.

You wrote earlier,
Quote:Bishop Williamson's recommendations will work but I'm not sure if the ideas are too statist.

I think I agree with you. This is a matter of prudential judgment that I admit I'm unqualified to make. It may be true that his ideas are too statist, but that doesn't mean that there is no role for the State in establishing and regulating a just economy. The proper role many Popes have assigned to the State has distressed no small number of Liberals as well as Socialists.
