"Despite its lofty language and current confidence building efforts, the problems of the WTO are deeply rooted in a culture and style of negotiations that militate against its own stated goals. It is a culture driven by self-interest, competition, inequality, litigiousness and punitiveness (sanctions). Nor, does it have a moral vision that would move it beyond its current stagnation. A commitment to a global common good would provide such a moral vision. The commitment to a common good has a long history in Catholic Social Teaching. As the world has become more integrated economically and technologically, the scope of the common good is global. It goes beyond identifying economic success of a nation by its GDP (Gross Domestic Products) and raises the question of how the goods of a society and of the world are distributed among all nations and persons. The global common good in CST is a social reality to which all persons contribute and in which all persons share through participation. That social reality includes the political, economic, social, cultural and environmental context of people's and societies' lives. "
