Pope Francis has launched a scathing attack on the global economic system, warning it is near collapse because of a 'throwaway culture' of greed and the 'atrocity' of youth unemployment.
In an interview with Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia, he said: 'Our world cannot take it anymore. Our global economic system can't take any more.
'We discard a whole generation to maintain an economic system that no longer endures - a system that to survive has to make war, as the big empires have always done.
'The economy is moved by the ambition of having more and, paradoxically, it feeds a throwaway culture.'
