“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. . .
This opinion . . . expresses a crude and naive trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power . . .
Meanwhile, the excluded are still waiting.” — POPE FRANCIS
