Catholics Hope Pope Francis Will Influence World's Economic Problems

The new Pope is both an anti-Marxist who opposed leftist political movements and a humble friend of the poor who has criticized global capitalism. In fact, his positions are in line with those of his predecessors on economic matters — suspicious of any ideology that views humans as economic actors alone. But a lot of people who follow the church say that he will be better than Pope Benedict at getting the Church's message across on economic issues.
