It recognizes that free enterprise, rightly understood and implemented, is currently the best available vehicle for systemically caring for the physical needs of the poor, and true global economy is the key way to create lasting development and, thereby, peace.

What Makes Saint John Paul the Great's "Centesimus Annus" So Important?
Centesimus Annus demonstrates the greatest depth of economic understanding of any magisterial document and contains a modern appreciation for the dynamic nature of free exchange and the way wealth is produced. Indeed, in its breadth and depth, it has been called “a completely new synthesis previously unseen in any other single work of religious reflection on the economy”.
