During the first half of the twentieth century, John A. Ryan developed and promoted moral arguments for reforming the economy of the United States. He was an advocate of minimum wage legislation and child labor restrictions, and he was very much involved in Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal. Ryan's influence has been extensive in American public policy; he was actually more closely connected with the makers of national economic policy as a Catholic moral theologian than his better-known Protestant contemporaries, Walter Rauschenbusch and Reinhold Niebuhr.Table of ContentsGeneral Editor's Introduction Introduction: Catholic Social Ethicist and Advocate for Reform Preface 3Introduction: The Elements and Scope of the Problem 1 The Landowner's Share of the National Product 2 Private Landownership a Natural Right 3 Defects of the Existing Land System 4 Methods of Reforming Our Land System 5 The Nature and the Rate of Interest 6 Alleged Intrinsic Justifications of Interest 7 Social and Presumptive Justifications of Interest 8 The Nature of Profits 9 The Principle Canons of Distributive Justice 10 Just Profits in Conditions of Competition 11 The Legal Limitation of Fortunes 12 The Duty of Distributing Superfluous Wealth 13 Some Erroneous Theories of Wage Justice 14 The Minimum of Justice: A Living Wage 15 The Problem of Complete Wage Justice 16 Methods of Increasing Wages 17 A New Status for Labor 18 Summary and Conclusion 19 The Basis and Justification of Rights Notes Ryan's Sources
