On January 21, 2006 Istituto Acton convened the second of an eight-part series dedicated to the papal social encyclical Centesimus Annus at the American seminary in Rome. Before an audience of seminarians, academics and journalists, the expert panel focused their discussion on the institution of the Christian family and its vital importance in the stable economic foundations of society. Discussion centered upon the impact on single parenting, welfare programs in the United Stats and Europe, and how the economy is affected by birthrates falling below replacement level.
