Each chapter of this book begins with a story of a real person who has felt the impact of one particular aspect of globalization. The book then explores the “signs of the times,” examining the relationship of these issues to low prices for goods and services. Finally, it turns to official church documents—the Catechism, the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church, papal encyclicals, the documents of Vatican II, and statements of the U.S. Catholic bishops.
