UPDATE 2-Vatican urges economic reforms, condemns collective greed

(Saint Peter's Basilica at the Vatican October 23, 2011/Giampiero Sposito)

* Document also calls for "Central World Bank"

* Condemns "idolatry of the market"

* Urges Wall Street to examine its impact on humanity

* Says reform should start under U.N. auspices (Recasts, adds more on document encouraging reform movements)

By Philip Pullella

VATICAN CITY, Oct 24 (Reuters) - - The Vatican called on Monday for sweeping reforms of the world economy and the creation of a ethical, global authority to regulate financial markets as demonstrations against corporate greed continued to spring up in major cities across the globe.

An 18-page document from the Vatican's Justice and Peace department said the financial downturn had revealed behaviours like "selfishness, collective greed and hoarding of goods on a great scale," adding that world economics needed an "ethic of solidarity" among rich and poor nations.

Urging Wall Street powerbrokers to examine the impact of their decisions on humanity, the Vatican called on those who wanted to change economic structures to "not be afraid to propose new ideas, even if they might destabilise pre-existing balances of power that prevail over the weakest."

The document was released as "Occupy Wall Street" protests this month sparked similar anti-capitalist movements around the world with demonstrators angry over government bailouts of big banks, corporate bonuses, and economic inequality.

The Vatican document was likely to be welcomed by the demonstrators who critics say lack clear objectives.[Ron: IF THAT happens the OWS will have been completely taken over by TPTW!]

"The economic and financial crisis which the world is going through calls everyone, individuals and peoples, to examine in depth the principles and the cultural and moral values at the basis of social coexistence," said the Vatican document. [Ron: Don't make me laugh! Everyone?! The average AHer doesn't care about such complex matters sooo what chance is there that "EVERYONE" will?].

It condemned what it called "the idolatry of the market" as well as a "neo-liberal thinking" that it said looked exclusively at technical solutions to economic problems.[Ron; How very thoughtful and perspicacious of the Vatican! and to think that this epiphany has only taken 2000 years! Why... even now i can hardly believe it.]

"If no solutions are found to the various forms of injustice, the negative effects that will follow on the social, political and economic level will be destined to create a climate of growing hostility and even violence, and ultimately undermine the very foundations of democratic institutions, even the ones considered most solid," it said.[Ron: How these clerics must laugh as they pen such bullshit! "destined to create a climate of growing hostility and even violence..." indeed! WTF does the Vatican think is already happening NOW, almost everywhere? ask the Libyans, Somalis, Iraqis, Afghanis, Bahraines, Pakistanis, Greeks, Irish,and on and on.].

The Vatican called for the establishment of "a supranational authority" with worldwide scope and "universal jurisdiction" to guide economic policies and decisions. [Ron: given that globalisation and its attendant humungous centralisation of POWER in finance, banking, corporatism, economics and almost everything else has led to humanity's current near death experience, THIS suggestion is bloody insane. But then the Vatican is run by Rothschild banksters and their Bolshevik minions sooo what else can we expect?].

Such an authority should start with the United Nations as its reference point but later become independent and be endowed with the power to see to it that developed countries were not allowed to wield "excessive power over the weaker countries".

Asked at a news conference if the document could become a manifesto for the movement of the "indignant ones", who have criticised global economic policies, Cardinal Peter Turkson, head of the Vatican's Justice and Peace department, said:

"The people on Wall Street need to sit down and go through a process of discernment and see whether their role managing the finances of the world is actually serving the interests of humanity and the common good."[Ron: NO! Wall street needs to be sent directly to gaol and the current global money creation, banking and financial systems need to be ABOLISHED completely! See eg: http://abundanthope.net/pages/True_US_History_108/David-Icke---Essential-Knowledge-For-A-Wall-Street-Protestor.shtml].

"We are calling for all these bodies and organisations to sit down and do a little bit of re-thinking."[Ron: WTF?! These "bodies" have created the current global catastrophe! They must be abolished and power to run their own affairs must be returned to local communities unfettered by outside centralising cabals.]

 

EFFECTIVE STRUCTURES

One section of the document explained why the Vatican felt the reform of the global economy was necessary and called for specific reforms such as taxation of financial transactions.

"In economic and financial matters, the most significant difficulties come from the lack of an effective set of structures that can guarantee, in addition to a system of governance, a system of government for the economy and international finance," it said.

The Vatican said the International Monetary Fund (IMF) no longer had the power or ability to stabilise world finance by regulating overall money supply and it was no longer able to watch "over the amount of credit risk taken on by the system".

The world needed a "minimum shared body of rules to manage the global financial market" and "some form of global monetary management".

"In fact, one can see an emerging requirement for a body that will carry out the functions of a kind of 'central world bank' that regulates the flow and system of monetary exchanges similar to the national central banks," it said.

The document acknowledged that such change would take years to put into place and was bound to encounter resistance.

"Of course, this transformation will be made at the cost of a gradual, balanced [?!?] transfer of a part of each nation's powers to a world authority and to regional authorities, [Ron: YOU BETCHA THEY WILL!] but this is necessary at a time when the dynamism of human society and the economy and the progress of technology are transcending borders, which are in fact already very eroded in a globalised world."
