For John, BLUF: The Pope is not a Marxist, but won't let Capitalism off the hook. Nothing to see here; just move along.
In The Boston Pilot this week is an article by Professors David and Angela Franks on the question of if the Pope is a Marxist. The title is "An economy of gratuity". Spoiler Alert—he isn't.
Yes, as usual, this opinion piece, being a good opinion piece, points us toward more reading, in this case John Mueller's Redeeming Economics.
