Is Capitalism Moral?

You are accustomed to that question being asked here at Distinctly Catholic, but I was delighted to see the same question asked on the front page of this week's Outlook section of the Washington Post in an essay by Steven Pearlstein. The money quote (pun intended): "At this point, the markets' uneven distribution of income has become so dramatic that it threatens to overwhelm the ability of a progressive tax-and-transfer system to keep up with it."
