On Monday, October 24, 2011, the Vatican released a document called “Towards reforming the international financial and monetary systems in the context of a global public authority.” In it, the Pope calls for a new global economic authority that could impose penalties on member states.
Fr. Thomas Reese, SJ, a Jesuit priest at Georgetown University’s Woodstock Theological Center, put pen to paper in anticipation of the document’s release writing that it is “closer to the views of the Occupy Wall Street movement than anyone in the U.S. Congress.”
