Promoting technical progress
Claim: Today more than ever before attention is rightly given to the increase of the production of agricultural and industrial goods and of the rendering of services, for the purpose of making provision for the growth of population and of satisfying the increasing desires of the human race. Therefore, technical progress, an inventive spirit, an eagerness to create and to expand enterprises, the application of methods of production, and the strenuous efforts of all who engage in production, in a word, all the elements making for such development, must be promoted. (Second Vatican Council. Gaudium et Spes, 1965).
