ABSTRACT
The article criticizes the document published by Catholic Bishop John J. Dougherty which blames multinational corporations for the economic problems being faced by developing countries as of 1976. It argues that the document contains incorrect and mistranslation of "Populorum Progressio," by Pope John Paul II. It presents an analysis of the Latin phrase opiniones irrepserunt. It also comments on the participation of the Jesuit journal "America" in the controversy. It discloses another misstatement which also appeared in other documents.
