Franciscan Richness - by Giacomo Todeschini[Reading report] by Pierre-Louis Choquet

2013-04-21

The author was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2011-2012. He is deeply interested the current climatic and environmental challenges, as well as in their ethical consequences. He consitnues his education at AgroParis Tech School, in order to become an engineer

Whereas the German sociologist Max Weber argues in his work The protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism that the Western world has lost its guilt about the idea of making profit withthe Protestant Reformation, the author of Franciscan Richness Giacomo Todeschini, seeks to demonstrate here that the roots of Christian economic reflexion are older; according to him, the Franciscan Order, founded in the thirteenth century by Saint Francis of Assisi has developed a new way of understanding the relations between economics and faith, that remains really influential in our common economic language.
