Not since the Great Depression of the 1930s has an economic downturn lasted so long. As the slump that began in 2007—the so-called “Great Recession”—lingered on and on, U.S. employers shed millions of jobs; the auto industry suffered a momentous slump; once-solid financial institutions accepted government bailouts; and sharp declines in the stock market wiped out the retirement savings of many Americans. But in the midst of their dark night of despair, people across the United States began quietly pitching in, doing their part in remarkably kind and creative ways, to ease the Great Recession’s devastating effects on those around them. In Franciscanomics, you’ll learn about near saint-like acts of kindness, and behaviors that reveal a basic human value—the willingness to help those in need—all of which calls to mind lessons from long-ago humanitarian, Saint Francis of Assisi.
