Barry, My Liege :
Some time ago I wrote an essay on the relationahip of morality to economic theory and practice. It is available online at : http://www.mkeever.com/moral.html
The essay was stimulated by a series of commentaries on the relationship of economic theory with the moral concerns about development and poverty as expressed by POVERTY AND DEVELOPMENT: AN INTER-FAITH PERSPECTIVE, written by Roger Riddel with the help of many and published by the World Faiths Development Council in 1999 [now at Georgetown University, Washington DC,http://berkleycenter.georgetown.edu/wfdd; previously at 33-37 Stockmore Street, Oxford, OX4 1Jt, United Kingdom; email: firstname.lastname@example.org; URL: www.wfdd.org.uk]
Pope Francis' recent essay on economics has stimulated interest in the topic. While it is an ongoing discussion, perhaps the Pope's essay will focus light on the relationship between poverty and violence.
Your faithful servant,
