'In 2005'?

John L. Allen Jr. at Crux
"In 2005, then-Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina wrote a foreword to a book [Una apuesta por America Latina (A Commitment to Latin America)] by a Vatican official from Uruguay named Guzmán Carriquiry, in which the future pontiff argued that Latin America has a pivotal role to play in the major ideological battles of the early 21st century.

"Drawing on Argentina’s Peronist heritage, Bergoglio said that Latin America can lead the way towards a 'third position' between Communism and free-market capitalism."

  1. Ah, yes, the "third way." Grimm, unfortunately, died before he could write it up with other tales.

    By the way, does "unfettered" capitalism exist anywhere in the world?
