Fr. Seamus Finn, OMI – member of the Justice/Peace and Integrity of Creation Ministry – continues his work on bringing faith and values into the financial world where the Oblates and other religious organization are invested. Fr. Finn is well-connected locally in Lowell and Greater Lowell. He writes regularly on the HuffingtonPost site. Today he notes:
Three resolutions that corporate leaders might do well to consider as they are out of the spotlight are as follows:
- Review the many public services on which their businesses rely on a regular basis.
- Include in that review, the publicly funded research and education that contributes to their business.
- Consider objectively what appropriate corporate tax rate is commensurate with their public citizenship.
Recognition by corporations of their fair tax contribution could go a long way toward shoring up the social fabric, political climate and the financial health of our country, all currently sorely frayed.
