Brooks, Catholics, and Capitalism
by

Since I excoriated David Brooks last week, I'm obligated to
praise him when he gets it right this week. And he gets it right today. Here's
a taste: 

Ideas and culture drive civilizations. The
Catholic Church nurtured one of the most impressive economic takeoffs in human
history. Today, as Catholicism spreads in Africa and China,
it's important to understand the beliefs that encourage people to work hard and
grow rich.

Now, Mr. Brooks, I'd like 2000 words reconciling this
argument with Max Weber's The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism.
