The pope met with the “Deposits and Loans Fund Institute,” an Italian institution that invests in the industrial development of this country. 

Pope Francis explained that it is fair that investors receive a profit, especially when it is reinvested in the development of society. 

POPE FRANCIS
“Christian thought is not opposed in principle to the prospect of profit, but rather it is opposed to profit at any cost, to profit that forgets human beings, makes them slaves, reduces them to a “thing” among others, a variable in a process that they cannot in any way control or which they cannot in any way oppose.”

The pope asked businessmen for transparency and good intentions in order to avoid corruption, and for an attitude of solidarity that favors the true economy, not speculation.
