Hello all:  I think one of the most powerful aspects of Lonergan's work is the breadth that enables him to speak to both (1) an adequate theory of economics and (2) moral conversion; so that he addresses clearly and critically not only what IS, CAN,  and SHOULD BE in economic development, but also the movement of personal development, deliberations, and decisions that can bring it about.
