Pope Francis urges global leaders to end ‘tyranny’ of moneySubmitted by FAHAYEK on Fri, 05/17/2013 - 08:48
Pope Francis has attacked the “dictatorship” of the global financial system and warned that the “cult of money” was making life a misery for millions.
He said free-market capitalism had created a “tyranny” and that human beings were being judged purely by their ability to consume goods.
Money should be made to “serve” people, not to “rule” them, he said, calling for a more ethical financial system and curbs on financial speculation.
Someone needs to spin the pope up on some Econ, before he suffers from another case of "I have absolutely zero clue what I am talking about"
