"Economic Personalism provides a guide that has the potential, through sound principles, to bring about a new era of justice, freedom, prosperity, and peace for all people throughout the world." - Deacon Joseph B. Gorini, CESJ Counselor, and former Chairman & CEO of Evangelization Enterprises, Inc."This is a must read for today's practicing Catholics, non-practicing Catholics, and even non-Catholics. It is a succinct evocation of the vision of Pope Saint John Paul II, and gets to the nub of the many problems facing Church, State and Family in these modern times." - Commander (Ret.) Robert Woodman"This book focuses on the sacredness of the individual person as a primary principle expressed through the inalienable human right to personal ownership of productive property. This provides the basis of social justice." - Dr. Robert Crane, Global Strategist and Director, Center for the Study of Islamic Thought and Muslim Societies"A desperately needed treatise that safeguards individual sovereignty over the power of the state. Chronicling a lineage of thought, Economic Personalism provides a high-level road map for future reforms and a basis for action today." - Ian Citti"Economic Personalism is an economic system centered on the dignity, empowerment, and full development of every person. Within 'economic personalism, ' when Black Lives Matter, all lives matter. We are all called to live a testimony-driven life with love, property, power, and justice, for all." - Rev. Dr. Robert Brantley"An excellent introduction to the philosophy and practice of broadened capital ownership Louis Kelso and Mortimer Adler proposed. It reflects the interfaith philosophy and advocacy of the solidarity movement of Central America. It is the only alternative between socialism and capitalism." - Joseph W. Recinos, Director, Advisory Council, Union Solidarista Guatemalteca"This must-read book gives a new understanding of private property, money and credit. Greaney and Brohawn show it is possible to finance new capital formation by democratizing capital credit. The foundation for this new paradigm is the JUST Third Way of 'Economic Personalism'." - Gary Reber, Editor, Widescreen Review "This book offers a way to finance the future without injury to the rights, including property rights, of anyone, and without destroying the environment. Economic Personalism is the "ism" the world has been seeking." - Dave Hamill, Host, Just Third Way Podcast and CEO, Esteo Group Inc.
