M. Oliver Heydorn Ph. D. - PB - 80 pages
This book is an excellent explanation of how the Social Credit financial system, which follows from the discovery and explanations of truths of the purely natural order, also comports well with and is completely supportive of Catholic magisterial teaching on the proper role of the social order in the life of mankind.
During his Catholic period, the early ecclesiastical writer Tertullian had once asked derisively: “What indeed has Athens to do with Jerusalem?” To put it more plainly, what possible positive connection could philosophy have with the true religion? Thankfully, such a negative attitude towards philosophy was subsequently condemned by the Church as heretical. In spite of the official rejection of fideism, many Catholics might still be tempted to ask today, after the pattern of Tertullian's metonymy, what has Farnborough to do with Rome? In other words, what does Social Credit have to do with Catholicism? In Economics of Social Credit and Catholic Social Teaching, Dr. Oliver Heydorn shows that if the Church's social doctrine successfully encapsulates the seed, or the basic blueprint, of a healthy social order, then the financial analysis and remedial proposals of C.H. Douglas, often referred to under the name of 'Social Credit', are of the greatest practical import. Social Credit promises to provide an effective policy and a set of appropriate mechanisms by means of which the Christian vision of society can finally be brought to a spectacular fruition on the economic plane.
M. Oliver Heydorn graduated summa cum laude with a Ph.D. in philosophy from the International Academy of Philosophy at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile. The IAP is dedicated to the study and promotion of realist phenomenology and other closely related schools of continental thought. Over the course of the last ten years, Dr. Heydorn has taught philosophy to undergraduates at three different institutions in three different countries. He is the author of Social Credit Economics. His articles have appeared in both scholarly and more popular media.
