Students are invited to submit a 1,500 to 2,000 word essay on the topic. The essay should present an original argument, taking into consideration what other scholars have said on the subject. In writing the essay, consider whether for-profit business activity is consistent with a proper understanding of Catholicism.
Essays should reference:
1) Two relevant papal encyclicals: Centesimus Annus (1991) and Evangelium Gaudium (2013).
2) The article Vocation of the Business Leader: A Reflection by Michael Naughton (Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, 2012).
3) At least one of the following books:
  •          Being Consumed: Economics and Christian Desire by William Cavanaugh (Eerdmans, 2008).
  •          Moral Ecology of Markets by Dan Finn (Cambridge, 2006).
  •          Catholic Social Teaching and the Market Economy by Philip Booth (IEA, 2007)
A scholarly panel will judge the essays and award scholarships to up to three students. Scholarships will cover the complete cost of travel and lodging to attend an undergraduate Symposium on Markets and Catholic Social Thought, to be held April 8-9, 2016 at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.
The spring symposium will bring together students from universities across the United States and Canada to explore in depth the relationships among Catholic social thought, markets, economics, and business ethics. The symposium will consist of two lectures by leading scholars and four discussion sessions based on readings that will be provided to the participants. Meals will be provided.  Completed essays should be sent to the director of the Georgetown Institute for the Study of Markets and Ethics, Dr. Michael J.
