Languages of publication
Selected opinions on entrepreneurship from catholic social thought are described in the article. Catholic Church in her teaching treats entrepreneurship favorably, but seldom actively encourages to it. Catholic social teaching indicates that entrepreneurs as well as managers or other decision makers in the economy should take common good, human dignity and their own fulfillment as their goals. Profit, being the first indicator of effectiveness of the business is just a means to accomplish goals, not a goal itself. Entrepreneurs and business leaders often encounter dilemmas where there is no ready answer. Entrepreneurship is a vocation enabling building virtues such as: courage, creativeness, community building and practical realism.
