Centro di Ricerca "Markets, Culture & Ethics"

Mce

The Markets, Culture and Ethics Research Centre (MCE) of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome, Italy was founded in 2009 to study the ethical dimensions (social and individual) of economic and social life in a systematic and scientific way, in the light of reason and the Catholic faith.

Its purpose is to foster dialogue between faith and contemporary culture for the promotion of a positive transformation of society and global development.

MCE Research Centre’s activities focus on deepening and disseminating Catholic perspectives, through research and academic events, on the relation between ethics, culture and the economy and on the role and conduct of business in society. 

MCE does not align with any particular school of economic thought and is open to all traditions willing to dialogue with Christian anthropology and perspective. At the same time, MCE has an ecumenical and interreligious approach since social problems can only be resolved by a joint effort and in dialogue with contemporary culture regarding the meaning of a more humane economy.

L’ultimo contributo della nostra Rubrica è, senza farlo apposta, una sintesi dei principali temi dei nostri appuntamenti precedenti. Vi anticipo, con un piccolo spoiler, che ci occuperemo un po’ più da vicino delle soluzioni innovative che la tecnologia blockchain offre per la governance di risorse comuni (common pool resources). Blockchain, governo (e quindi norme), bene comune: come vedete sono concetti ormai familiari!  

Il 16 Marzo si è svolto il workshop Impact Meets Digital: Empowering Social Impact, di cui il centro di ricerca Markets, Culture and Ethics (MCE) è stato uno dei promotori.

Una rete di nodi per una rete di persone.

Quando il professor Giacomo Sillari, docente di Epistemologia presso la Luiss Guido Carli, ci ha proposto (su richiesta della maggior parte dei dottorandi!) di approfondire temi di blockchain e bitcoin, non so se mi è partito prima lo sbadiglio o se si è arricciato il capello.

In the middle of the pandemic, Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum (WEF), and Thierry Malleret published “The Great Reset”. In the book, the authors foresee profound and lasting changes in society and the economy, due to the pandemic. The publication had a great impact and led the discussion of the WEF 2021 initiative.

The Markets, Culture and Ethics Research Centre (MCE) realized the urgency to join the conversation and decided to launch a video series on “The Great Reset” from the point of view of Catholic Social Thought with Prof. Martin Schlag, MCE Director.
