This article aims to take a brief look at the capitalist spirit as exposed by Max Weber, with his well-known perspective on the protestant ethic, finding commonalities with the current catholic perspective of Pope Francis I on the care for “our common home”, as revealed in the Encyclical “Laudatio Si’” from 2015. From these two social and economic worldviews there will be observed the elements of economic thinking pertaining to a religious paradigm that is called to support the sustainable economic development message throughout the 21th century.
