Thomas Piketty on Anthony Atkinson

For all you strictly spiritual types, a few select excerpts follow from this article. See it for his more specific proposals:

"Anthony Atkinson occupies a unique place among economists. During the past half-century, in defiance of prevailing trends, he managed to place the question of inequality at the center of his work while demonstrating that economics is first and foremost a social and moral science."

"With Atkinson, the dividing lines between history, economics, and politics have never been strict: he has always tried to reconcile the scholar with the citizen, often discreetly, occasionally in a more forthright manner."

I'd add religion and spirituality to that list. And it seems the Pope would agree.
