Una nueva ética económica católica en respuesta al nuevo liberalismo

Abstract [en]

 

The aim of this article is to inquire into the emergence of a new catholic economic ethic, as well as examine whether this ethic differs from that conceptualized by Max Weber as the protestant ethic. The theoretical starting point is Weber’s classic work

 

The protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism, in which Weber argued that Catholic entrepreneurs only participated marginally in the development of modern capitalism. Early, many catholic intellectuals refused any merits of the capitalist system, particularly in its liberal version. The market economy has commonly been associated with individualism, utilitarianism, and egotism. The late Pope John Paul II, as head of the Vatican State, was active in promoting a change of ethical attitude in the face of capitalism, particularly through the Centesimus Annus

Encyclical. This encyclical attempts to formulate a bridge between catholic thinking and capitalism, by accepting, and even promoting, important aspects of capitalism, albeit a capitalism imbued by a new catholic economic ethic.

Abstract [es]

 

El objetivo de este artículo es indagar sobre la emergencia de una nueva ética económica católica y examinar si esta ética difiere de la conceptualizada por Max Weber como ética protestante. El punto de partida teórico de este artículo es la clásica obra de Weber

 

La ética protestante y el espíritu del capitalismo, en la cual el autor sostuvo que los empresarios católicos sólo habían participado marginalmente en el desarrollo del moderno capitalismo. Los intelectuales católicos rechazaron tempranamente cualquier mérito del sistema capitalista, particularmente en su versión liberal. La economía de mercado ha sido comúnmente asociada con el individualismo, utilitarismo y egoísmo. El Papa Juan Pablo II, como anterior jefe del Estado Vaticano, promocionó activamente un cambio de actitud frente al capitalismo, especialmente por medio de la encíclica Centesimus Annus

. Esta encíclica intentó construir un puente entre el pensamiento católico y el capitalismo, a través de aceptar, y también promover, aspectos importantes del capitalismo, eso sí, uno imbuido de una nueva ética económica católica.
