A growing chorus of economists and politicians is demanding a new paradigm to create a global economy for the common good. In his recent book Cathonomics, Anthony M. Annett unites insights in economics with those from theology, philosophy, climate science, and psychology, exposing the failures of neoliberalism while offering us a new model rooted in the wisdom of Catholic social teaching and classical ethical traditions. Drawing from the work of Pope Leo XIII, Pope Francis, Thomas Aquinas, and Aristotle, Annett applies these teachings to discuss current economic challenges such as inequality, unemployment and underemployment, climate change, and the roles of business and finance.

Annett is a Gabelli fellow at Fordham University and a senior adviser at the Sustainable Development Solutions Network. He has a Ph.D. in economics from Columbia University and spent two decades at the International Monetary Fund, where he worked as a speechwriter to the managing director. He is also a member of the College of Fellows of the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology.

This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, parents, students, and the public.
