A Free and Fraternal Economy a Franciscan Perspective by Carbajo Nunez
This book presents the important contribution that the Franciscan friars made, during the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth centuries, to understand, accept, and humanize the incipient market economy. For some authors, they were decisive in the emergence of the modern market economy. The friars even founded financial institutions: the Mounts of Piety. Those responses from yesterday can guide the search for solutions to the current crisis.
