    Many books, articles, and opinion editorial pieces have been written to answer the question "Are markets just?" But this is the wrong question to ask. Everyone with an answer to that question also takes a position on three other issues, what we might call the moral context or "moral ecology" of markets. These are the provision of "essential" goods and services to those who cannot provide them for themselves, the morality of individuals and organizations, and the character of civil society. Every moral stance on the justice of markets - from left to right on the political spectrum - also takes a stand on these three. Catholic social thought is of significant help in sorting out competing answers.
