"Repairing Our Stewardship of Creation: Abrahamic Social Thought and the Global Economic Crisis"

The Mann Center was co-sponsor of Caux Round Table’s 2010 Scholars’ Retreat, “After the Global Economic Crisis: Abrahamic Social Thought and Redeeming the Stewardship of Creation.” Theologians from Jewish, Christian and Islamic traditions produced a statement calling for reform based on principles of moral capitalism. The center also participated in the 2012 Global Dialogue, "Cross-sector Leadership to Realize a Truly Sustainable Market Economy for Europe and the World."

Mann Center Founding Director John Knapp was a fellow of the Caux Round Table, which since 1986 has kindled vibrant global dialogues among leaders in business, government, the learned professions, nongovernmental organizations, religious organizations, and scholarly communities to promote principled leadership and the prudent stewardship of human, ecological, and financial capital.
