Sorting through the implications of Pope Benedict’s encyclical requires careful reflection from a variety of backgrounds and methods. This requires attention to current cultural and technical trends, and the potential for change in business, government, the Church, and daily civil life. This chapter identifies differing implications of Benedict’s encyclical, but points to an integrated response to the world’s problems by Catholic social thought. The following essays are presented: New Institutions and Social Processes by Mary Jo Bane, A Better Legal Definition of What Is Reasonable by Amelia J. Uelmen, Participation as Key for a Just Economy by Johan Verstraeten, Reconceiving Welfare Policies by Stefano Zamagni, Shifting Attention Within the Church by Mary Jo Bane, Developing Resources for Business and Business Schools by Michael J. Naughton, and Improving Business Education by Matthew J. Slaughter.
