Perspectives from Bernard Lonergan
An International Summit Conference
Friday and Saturday
June 19 and 20, 2009
Hosted by the Center for Catholic Studies and sponsored by the Bernard J. Lonergan Institute and the Micah Business Leadership Project
Join us for an eye-opening international summit conference on economics, which will convene experts from the business community, academia and other fields to examine the writings and theories of renowned philosopher and theologian Bernard J. Lonergan, S.J. (1904-1984).
Author of For a New Political Economy and Macroeconomic Dynamics: An Essay in Circulation Analysis (University of Toronto Press), Lonergan taught that the fundamental issue in avoiding economic booms and slumps was wide-spread teaching of a correct understanding of the economic cycle. Only in this way can we avoid "putting our foot on the accelerator and the brake at the same time."
