University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) - School of Law

October 22, 2003

UCLA, School of Law Research Paper No. 03-20

Abstract:     
This brief essay explores Catholic social thought on corporate governance. Human dignity and freedom are central principles of Catholic social thought. This essay argues that preserving the economic freedom of corporations to pursue wealth is an essential part of effective means for achieving human freedom. To the extent prudential judgments about corporate regulation are required, the Church and civil society should strive towards a nuanced balancing of freedom and virtue.
