December 6, 2011 | This video is an excerpt from the Berkley Center event The Bishops' Letter 'Economic Justice For All': Twenty-Five Years Later.

The basis of the event originated from a letter written in November 1986, in the midst of an economic expansion. The Bishops of the United States published a pastoral letter on Catholic Social Teaching and its policy implications. They gave it the title "Economic Justice for All." A quarter century later, the economy is stagnating, the Tea Party and Occupy Wall St. have emerged, and we are in the midst of a prolonged budget crisis. How well do the Bishops' analysis and prescriptions hold up after 25 years? How relevant is Catholic Social Teaching to today's economic and budget crisis? Does the current political deadlock on the budget reflect different views of economic justice?
