PROBLEMS OF MODERN ECONOMICS, N 1 (29), 2009
ECONOMICS AND RELIGION
Alford H.
Dean of The Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas “Angelicum”

Human dimension and the key role of the public good
The author argues that economic good do not possess an independent value of their own, since they have to serve spiritual and harmonic development of the human being. Yet there is no fundamental conflict between the realization of one’s personal good and the good of the society as a whole. The article analyzes interpretations of human development in UNO “Reports on Human Development” and in the Catholic social thought. A model of decision making on the basis of the hierarchy of highest and economical, public and private good is presented
Key words: economy and religion, human development, public good, broadening of human capacities, true good, visible good
