The Call to Work in Business Is Not an Amoral Calling

A Catechism for Business and the new School of Business and Economics at the Catholic University of America were featured in a National Catholic Register post by Peter Jesserer Smith.  The article examined the school’s mission to transform the way people think about business from a notion of business is an amoral pursuit to an understanding that business is a moral calling which should be grounded in ethics and moral responsibility.  
"CUA’s School of Business and Economics is challenging businesses large and small in the 21st-century economy to anchor their business practices in the Catholic Church’s social teachings. Late last month, the school’s dean, Andrew Abela, along with co-editor and professor of moral theology Joseph Capizzi, unveiled the new Catechism for Business, a handbook for businesspeople who want to know the Church’s social doctrine and their obligations to work for a just society.
Abela told the Register in an interview that the whole purpose of the Catechism for Business and the School of Business is ‘to combat this notion that business is amoral."
