Article publication date: 20 July 2010
This paper seeks to provide an approach to analyze the causes of the current financial crisis. Following classic guidelines of Catholic social thought, it aims to show how personal virtues may have prevented it.
This is a practitioner paper summarizing personal insider experience and reflection.
The current financial crisis illustrates how personal behaviors of all, as well as ambient culture, are to be blamed more than the available instruments or the system. It questions not only the financiers but also each actor of the economy in simple everyday acts.
The paper provides an insider perspective on the financial crisis which looks for practical solutions available without implementing external regulation.
