    The Global Financial Crisis has greatly damaged international efforts to enhance human rights, particularly in developing countries. Recent Catholic social thinking is being strongly influenced by leading economists like Stiglitz, who had warned about the dangers of financial collapse; they blame the neoliberal ideology for trashing moral standards. Many economists, including Amartya Sen and Jeffrey Sachs, have called for a new moral framework to promote greater social equity and to confront the dominance of special interests.
