Research output: Book/ReportOther report


The articles collected in this volume report, with a few minor changes, presentations given during the international annual Conference and Consultation organized by the Foundation in 2017. Overall, the papers here collected provide the main ideas that have characterized the work of the Foundation over the last two years and illustrate the efforts made by the Foundation to respond to the concerns raised by the Holy Father on the occasion of the audiences granted to the Foundation in 2016 and 2017. Specifically, three broad topics are addressed in the volume, all related to the transformations of the digital age. First the role of catholic social teaching in the current global turmoil, then the future of jobs and wages in a rapidly changing and technology driven environment and, finally, some relevant recently emerged ethical issues in economics and finance. The common thread running through all the contributions is the multidimensional nature of solidarity, here envisaged as a crucial community value of our society and a key principle of catholic social teaching which should guide our behavior in a forward looking manner. In this respect, intergenerational solidarity acquires a special relevance for its capacity to take into consideration future generations in current decisions.
