Abstract

The overwhelming majority of the points made in this assessment of the first draft of the U.S. bishops' pastoral, "Catholic Social 'Teaching and the U.S. Economy,'" shall be critical; indeed, highly critical. It therefore behooves us to begin by considering the positive elements of the bishops' pastoral, before examining its shortcomings.
