One doesn't even have to go to Aquinas or Aristotle to discern if Jesus favors socialism or capitalism. Go to the source in the Gospel parable about the owner of the vineyard and the workers he hires at different times of the day to work the vineyard. When those who started early in the morning got paid the same amount as those who only started working late in the afternoon, some of the workers started to grumble about fairness. The owner simply says didn't you agree to the wage we discussed? And by the way who are you to tell me I can 't be generous with my own money? Sounds like capitalism to me!
