There is a space between scientific research and divulgation. The EoF ProView wants to occupy that space. Through the publication of articles, the EoF ProView aims at disseminating knowledge related to The Economy of Francesco. As the name suggests, the focus is on the research of today that has a look to the future.
3 economic ideas for a better future
As we get closer to our meeting in Assisi, I want to share with you a few words about some economic ideas that can build a basis on which we can think together about a new way of conceiving the economy. All three ideas are very well connected to Pope Francis’ writings and thoughts and are able to deal with our many contemporary challenges: the environmental crisis, high levels of inequality, precarious labor, political extremism and/or indifference.
Addressing Intergenerational Poverty: In Search for a Better Future
Extreme poverty continues to persist in the world. High barriers to quality healthcare, a weakening job market, and political instability are some factors that attribute to this, but there is also the consideration that due to intrinsic systemic discrimination, those caught in a cycle of poverty will remain in that cycle indefinitely, regardless of the socio-economic safety nets that are made available to them.

Taxation and gender inequality in Brazil: what does the data say about the way the country taxes?
Social inequality is one of the hallmarks of mercantile societies and is permeated by gender, race and class relations, as well as the way different societies organize themselves productively. Gender inequality is related to the productive context, defining the spaces in which women and men occupy in society.
From ASEAN to the world: values for a new economy
Bearing in mind that several EoF values are very much similar to Asian values, namely “common good” and “unity in diversity”, there should be sharing sessions through the youth-led EoF ASEAN hub about how these two values can benefit from each other.
ROOTS – The Little Prince in dialogue with EoF (Part I)
The eyes of the poor and the eyes of the children will help us to discover the wisdom of the work of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, a wisdom that can appropriately nurture “The Economy of Francesco”. We believe that this novel can shed light on the challenges that we have to face nowadays.
