Those who argue that Pope Francis is advocating socialism focus on the economic section of his apostolic exhortation Evangellii Gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel), which in part states, “In this context, some people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world.  This opinion…expresses a crude and naïve trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power and in the sacralized workings of the prevailing economic system.”
