VATICAN CITY (AP) — Bernie Sanders has told a Vatican conference that young people today are no longer satisfied with an economy "of stark inequality and injustice" and want instead an economy that looks out for the common good. The Democratic presidential candidate says today's youth — in the United States and elsewhere — are looking for a "return to fairness" and an economy that ensures everyone has access to health care, nutrition and education. Sanders made the trip to Rome even as he faces a crucial New York primary against rival Hillary Clinton next week.
