When I get time I will post some more stuff re Woods, the Libertrad. For now, suffice it to say that Mr. Woods, trained as a historian, has taken it upon himself to oppose the Magisterium's Social Doctrine even going so far to claim it has no authority or expertise to teach in that area.

So, a libertrad historian (no degree in economics. Woods is a Lew Rockwell kooky-cutout) is going to tell the Popes what is what re economics using amoral/imoral libertarianism as the benchmark.

Well, much of the commentary that has come out of the Vatican on economics over the last century has been, to be kind, naive.

The Church may have something to say about economics, but JPII seemed to have a knee-jerk aversion to the American version of free market capitalism, and often blamed it for the plight of the third world. He almost completely ignored the tyrannical governments that keep these people in poverty.
