Mercatornet.com offers this review of Mary L. Hirschfeld's Aquinas and the Market: Toward a Humane Economy, a book which might interest some here.

I think it would be fair to state mercatornet is heavily Leftist and because of this obvious bias, not a reliable source for reviews. Regarding economics, "being content with what you have" is a good thing that has become lost. In other words, having enough is enough. Today, as more and more money flows to billionaires, the average, majority of the population is barely living from paycheck to paycheck. For billionaires, there is a very dangerous and false path: There is no such thing as too much money.

Wealth is a gift from God and each wealthy person is called to be a good steward.

[H]eavily Leftist? In what sense, Amon? There are a few customer reviews of the book on Amazon accessible speedily via the link I provided. Are they also biased in some important way?
