The new work this month is a publication in the MCENotebooks series entitled: “Creati per la grandezza” (Created for Greatness). The author, Alexandre Harvard, with whom MCE has already published Leadership Virtuosa, turns his attention in this volume to the role of magnanimity in economic activity.
“Magnanimity is an ideal rooted in trust in man and his inherent greatness. It is the virtue of action. It is the supreme form of human hope. Magnanimity is a virtue capable of setting the tone of one’s entire life, transforming it, giving it new meaning, and leading to the flourishing of the personality. It is the first specific virtue of leaders.”
This book marks the sixth publication in the MCENotebooks series.

In December we concluded the second edition of the Economics 4 Ecclesiastics course, proposed by the MCE Research Centre to provide the basics of economics for the students of the Roman pontifical universities. The instructors, Lord Brian Griffiths (House of Lords) and Antonio Argandoña (Emeritus Professor, IESE Business School), presented three modules covering general topics in the areas of micro and macroeconomics, globalization and the role of business, and principles of finance and bank regulation.
The following interviews with two of the participants provide a good summary of the course and its value for pontifical students.
