This recent article talks about the growing concern of the ecomic crisis (this was agitated by riots in London as well as the european economic crisis). Notice the following account recorded in the washington post:
MADRID — Pope Benedict XVI denounced the profit-at-all-cost mentality that he says is behind Europe’s economic crisis as he arrived in hard-hit Spain on Thursday, adding that morals and ethics must play a greater role in formulating economic policy in the future. “Benedict made the comments as he traveled to Madrid for World Youth Day, a weeklong Catholic festival that is taking place against a backdrop of the European debt crisis and social unrest among the young that exploded recently in rioting across Britain.
Benedict said the crisis and sense of desperation among young people proved that ethics have been increasingly left out of formulating economic policy at local and international levels.
