CWN Editor's Note: Cardinal Peter Turkson, the prefect of the dicastery for Integral Human Development, told reporters that Pope Francis favors neither socialism nor capitalism, but another approach: the “social economy.” This approach, the cardinal said, favors not the “invisible hand” of Adam Smith but “the very visible hand of fraternity, solidarity, and the common good.”
