Vatican     POPE SETS LIMITS ON GLOBAL ECONOMIC COOPERATION
"Globalisation will have very positive effects if it is grounded in a strong sense of the absolute character and dignity of all human persons and the principle that the earth's goods are for all," Pope John Paul has told an Ethics and Finance congress in Italy.
    Speaking on Saturday to the "Centesimus Annus" Foundation of Christian businessmen, he said that because it now is possible to create great wealth rapidly without any connection to a defined quantity of work, Catholics must be conscious that every "operation in finance and administration must always have as its objective not to violate man's dignity".
    Referring to the encyclical "Centesimus Annus," the Holy Father spoke about the need to "promote international institutions of control and guidance that will direct the economy itself to the common good."
