Pope Francis warns of ‘a viral genocide’ if governments put the economy before people amid coronavirus pandemic
“The governments that face the crisis in this way show the priority of their decisions: the people first.... It would be sad if they opted for the opposite, which would lead to the death of very many people.”
The federal government has the tools to stabilize the economy in the wake of coronavirus, writes the economist Paul D. McNelis, S.J. We cannot settle for delayed and piecemeal responses.
The pope’s gathering of economists in Assisi next month is part of a long process of establishing a new economic model that goes beyond financial self-interest, writes the social entrepreneur Felipe Witchger.
