"The problems don't begin in 2007 with the sub-prime crisis. It's a much older thing that we had not seen completely, but where we can find the keys to this behavior, of these wrong visions, and that's what needs to be corrected. The Church's social teachings is not a recipe book. It's not, it's a supplement, a deepening. We are in a good moment for this because there's a new line of people that want to do things differently from how they've been done until now.” 

CARD. DOMENICO CALCAGNO 
President, APSA 
"The complexity of this phenomenon shows the responsibility of all. Of the people that work in finance, manufacturing or economy. Also in the personal aspect, and families. These past few years, several people haven't properly used their personal responsibilities. Either living beyond their means, or creating false illusions of wealth, through financial products that have not consistency.”
