CATHOLIC SOCIAL VALUES AND EMPLOYEE OWNERSHIP

Catholic Esop

When anticipating a new right-wing coalition after the fall of government in Slovenia, we should look for a way to appeal to the traditionalist values with employee ownership and find support of economic program promoting such policies among the conservative politicians. 

There are at least two ways to achieve this. First is to introduce employee ownership as a tool to anchor ownership of Slovenian companies in the hands of Slovenian citizens, and prevent the run of produced value to foreign investors. The second is to ground employee ownership with conservative social values, namely with catholic social values. There is no coicidence that the pioneer of cooperativism in Slovenia was Janez Evangelist Krek, a catholic priest.

In 1891, Pope Leo XII wrote: “The law should favor ownership, and its policy should be to induce as many as possible of the people to become owners.”
