Pope claims ‘greed is driving world to ruin’

Pope Francis on Thursday called on the world to reject the “idolatry of money”, claiming that greed was driving societies to ruin. In an interview in his modest apartment in the Vatican, the pope told the glossy French magazine Paris Match that the world economic system as it stands was “unsustainable”. “Man and all creation must not be at the service of money… humanity must renounce its adoration of money and instead put at its centre the person, the common good and future generations who will people the Earth after us,” he said, saying a world climate change conference in Paris in December could help turn that around.
