Poverty, Inc. : fighting poverty is big business, but who profits the most?( Visual )

12 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'I see multiple colonial governors, ' says Ghanaian software entrepreneur Herman Chinery-Hesse of the international development establishment in Africa. 'We are held captive by the donor community.' The West has positioned itself as the protagonist of development, giving rise to a vast multi-billion dollar poverty industry - the business of doing good has never been better. Yet, the results have been mixed, in some cases even catastrophic, and leaders in the developing world are growing increasingly vocal in calling for change. Drawing from over 200 interviews filmed in 20 countries, Poverty, Inc. unearths an uncomfortable side of charity we can no longer ignore. From TOMs Shoes to international adoptions, from solar panels to U.S. agricultural subsidies, the film challenges each of us to ask the tough question: Could I be part of the problem?"--Container
Defending the free market : the moral case for a free economy by Robert A Sirico( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Left has seized on our economic troubles as an excuse to "blame the rich guy" and paint a picture of capitalism and the free market as selfish, greedy, and cruel. Democrats in Congress and "Occupy" protesters across the country assert that the free market is not only unforgiving, it's morally corrupt. According to President Obama and his allies, only by allowing the government to heavily control and regulate business and by redistributing the wealth can we ensure fairness and compassion. Exactly the opposite is true, says Father Robert A. Sirico in his thought-provoking new book, The Moral Case for a Free Economy. Father Sirico argues that a free economy actually promotes charity, selflessness, and kindness. And in The Moral Case for a Free Economy, he shows why free-market capitalism is not only the best way to ensure individual success and national prosperity but is also the surest route to a moral and socially-just society. In The Moral Case for a Free Economy, Father Sirico shows:Why we can't have freedom without a free economy and why the best way to help the poor is to a start a businessWhy charity works-but welfare doesn'tHow Father Sirico himself converted from being a leftist colleague of Jane Fonda and Tom Hayden to recognizing the merits of a free economyIn this heated presidential election year, the Left will argue that capitalism may produce winners, but it is cruel and unfair. But as Sirico proves in The Moral Case for a Free Economy, capitalism does not simply provide opportunity for material success, but it ensures a more ethical and moral society as well"--

Il personalismo economico e la società libera by Robert A Sirico( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in Italian and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fondatore del celebre "Lord Acton Institute", Robert Sirico propone la religione come difesa della libertà e come educazione alla responsabilità del singolo. La sua teoria tende a conciliare l'economia di mercato nella sua versione austriaca e la tradizione cristiana. Nella sua riflessione il libero mercato non ostacolato serve i bisogni materiali delle persone e promuove la libertà meglio di quel socialismo che egli aveva precedentemente abbracciato. Per Sirico il mercato, per essere tale, ossia per ben svolgere il ruolo di ordinatore delle scelte degli operatori economici, necessita di un presupposto di carattere etico. Tale presupposto, come afferma Giovanni Paolo II nella Centesimus annus, ha il merito di evidenziare l'elemento essenzialmente positivo, in quanto umano ovvero personalista, della moderna economia di mercato e che sta alla base del personalismo metodologico, riducendo l'azione stessa al suo soggetto, ossia la persona agente, la quale è un soggetto libero, creativo, responsabile e relazionale
