You are priests and religious; you are not social or political leaders or officials of a temporal power. For this reason I repeat to you "Let us not be under the illusion that we are serving the Gospel if we `dilute' our charism through an exaggerated interest in the wide field of temporal problems." (Address to the Clergy of Rome, 9 November 1978)...
...Let us not forget that temporal leadership can easily be a source of division, while the priest must be a sign and agent of unity and brotherhood. Secular functions are the specific field of action of laymen, who have to improve temporal matters with the Christian spirit.

It is not capitalism, but Marxism -- the ideology of both Pope Francis and Barack Obama -- that has resulted in more mass murder (138 million in the 20th century alone according to academics) and economic misery (the economic "failure of socialism in countries around the world can be traced to one critical defect: it is a system that ignores [human] incentives.") than any political system in history.
Paraphrasing the EIB Network, each of Pope Francis's encyclicals are often an unvarnished paen of some facet of Marxism, referring to "unfettered capitalism" and "global warming". He has gone so far as to circulate a draft of a major environmental treatise that lays the blame for 'the bulk of global warming' on humans.
In fact, a major peer-reviewed study proves that the majority of scientists in the field are skeptical that global warming is a crisis and, further, that humans are to blame.
In fact, meteorologist Joe Bastardi recently published two charts and begged the Pontiff to review them.
One thing is clear: Barack Obama has found a soulmate in Pope Francis and the combined damage these men can do to Western civilization is substantial.
