2437 On the international level, inequality of resources and economic capability is such that it creates a real “gap” between nations.224 On the one side there are those nations possessing and developing the means of growth and, on the other, those accumulating debts.


2438 Various causes of a religious, political, economic, and financial nature today give “the social question a worldwide dimension.”225 There must be solidarity among nations which are already politically interdependent. It is even more essential when it is a question of dismantling the “perverse mechanisms” that impede the development of the less advanced countries.226 In place of abusive if not usurious financial systems, iniquitous commercial relations among nations, and the arms race, there must be substituted a common effort to mobilize resources toward objectives of moral, cultural, and economic development, “redefining the priorities and hierarchies of values.”227
