    When Pope Francis used the term “unfettered capitalism,” he was obvioulsy not referring to “totally unfettered capitalism.” He was referring to the obvious tendency in today’s world to minimize regulation so that greed may advance. To critique his statement by saying that no market is totally free is simply to evade the prophetic word offered by the Pope. He seems to me to be in remarkable harmony with the one who said, “You cannot serve God and money.”
