Currently it is a tough time for Meryn Cadell and help is on the way when people go here.
And speaking about the Pope or as Meryn would say, the Pope Pope Pope I noticed the astonishing announcement by Pope Francis’s Evangelii Gaudium in the news last autumn and then Freakanomics did an inspection of the Pope’s ideas and as usual for Freakanomics it’s the most brilliant shit in the world.
I wonder what Regina based philosopher Paul Shuck thinks of Pope Francis, who wrote in Evangelii Gaudium “Some people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world. This opinion, which has never been confirmed by the facts, expresses a crude and naïve trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power and in the sacralized workings of the prevailing economic system. Meanwhile, the excluded are still waiting.”
