Where do our jobs come from?

                                    "St. Joseph the Worker," by Pietro Annigoni

And who owns them?  A new book, "Jobs of Our Own" by Race Mathews, gives expression to themes sounded by Pope Benedict XVI in his encyclical "Caritas in Veritate," including this one:

Alongside profit-oriented private enterprise and the various types of public enterprise, there must be room for commercial entities based on mutualist principles and pursuing social ends to take root and express themselves. It is from their reciprocal encounter in the marketplace that one may expect hybrid forms of commercial behaviour to emerge, and hence an attentiveness to ways of civilizing the economy. (38)
