First paragraph of section 2.3:
In the past, only kings and priests mattered, but around 400 years ago, some people – a few in Germany and Spain but mainly in the Netherlands and England – began to think for themselves. They started asking questions. Science also began at that time.
From the Amazon blurb about the book:
After reading this book, every child will begin to appreciate the power of markets and the risks of government interventions.
Modern capitalism tends to emphasize market freedom, and implicitly, consumption. Catholic economics tends to emphasize personal ownership of property, and implicitly, production. They are not necessarily opposed, but I get the impression this particular book is more in the modern capitalism camp. That could be OK if it's balanced with other views.
- the two pre-V2 encyclicals covering social economics (Rerum novarum and Quadragesimo anno)
- Belloc's Economics for Helen, which you can find free as PDF (that will cover distributism, of course)
I may suggest some other books of a more secular nature, if you're interested.
