The Latest: Pope urges Davos forum to promote social justice

Pope Francis is urging political and business leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos to create the conditions for building inclusive, just and supportive societies. In his opinion, we cannot continue to move forward as if the spread of poverty and justice had no cause. Selfish lifestyles full of opulence have boosted unemployment, increased poverty, created new forms of slavery and widened the socio-economic gap in many places. By rejecting "throwaway" culture and a "mentality of indifference," entrepreneurs have the potential to effect substantial changes such as creating new jobs, respecting labor laws, fighting against public and private corruption and promoting social justice.
