By: Vladimir Pachkov, SJ

It all began in November 2001 when Jim O’Neill of the investment bank Goldman Sachs published the paper “Building Better Global Economic BRICs.”[1] He predicted an increase in the influence on global GDP of the then BRIC states (an acronym for Brazil, Russia, India and China), especially China, thus emphasizing the need for a global reorganization of the economy and politics.

By: Vincenzo Anselmo, SJ

The Gaza War and the Ground Invasion

By: Giovanni Sale, SJ

The ‘ground operation’ The so-called “ground operation” began with the penetration of Israeli soldiers and tanks into the Gaza Strip on October 20, 2023.

Laudato Si’ as a Communication Phenomenon

By: Paul A. Soukup, SJ

When Pope Francis issued the encyclical letter Laudato Si’ on May 24, 2015, he advanced Catholic social teaching and attracted worldwide attention with a letter addressed to Catholics and to people of the world.
