Michael Novak has died, a Roman Catholic theologian of capitalism and economic systems, who held that business could be conducted according to Christian principles, unlike the socialism other Christians may espouse. Jesus strongly cautioned the rich, but didn’t condemn them out of hand; in one famous parable a rich man, determined to give a banquet for all his neighbors, is the exemplar who does God’s will. (Evan Vucci/Associated Press)
