Arts and Humanities | Catholic Studies | Economics | Ethics in Religion | Religion | Social and Behavioral Sciences
Daniel K. Finn here responds to Philip Booth and Samuel Gregg’s articles in the Spring 2012 issue of the Journal of Markets & Morality (15.1). These articles were themselves responses to Finn’s controversy contribution, “Nine Libertarian Heresies Tempting Neoconservative Catholics to Stray from Catholic Social Thought,” in the Fall 2011 issue (14.2). In particular, this article responds to Philip Booth with regards to the possibility of straying from Roman Catholic social thought, the nature of private property, the self-regulation of the market, and the doctrine of just price in the work of Thomas Aquinas, as well as addressing a concern from both Booth and Gregg regarding his previous misattribution of a quote and the accuracy of the conclusions drawn from that particular quote.
