The Acton Institute isn't impressed with Pope Francis's takedown of trickle down economics. Samuel Gregg, the organization's director of research, went to the pages of the National Review to express his concern with Francis's critique. There he argued that "a number of claims made... [by Pope Francis and] some of the assumptions underlying those statements are rather questionable."

Elise Hilton has a nice summary of Gregg's arguments.

Catholic League--another Catholic organization dedicated to the promotion of religious and civil rights--has so far been silent on the issue.
