4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Arthur Ebeling on December 8, 2002
Format: Paperback
This is a very in-depth and detailed economic as well as philosophical analysis that incorporates morality as a means of justification. Perhaps to difficult for drr8066 to understand, the book is highly detailed and informative. With strong ideas of reformed capitalism, the author well supports his argument. He speaks to various facets and ideals of society including liberty, opportunity, and employment. As a college student, I thoroughly enjoyed and benefited from this intellectually stimulating composition. I strongly recommend it!

This guy is an idiot- he thinks that inheritance should be limited. What about the person giving away the money? You would actually be stripping their rights to do what they want with the money that they earned. Is the idea to 'level the playing field'? Or is this just some subversive left wing attempt to fill the coffers of our overreaching government and/or finance more entitlements?

Wow did your parents mess you up D.W., limit inheritance to 100K?

I wasn't born with "Buffet Money" but I have an "EQUAL OPPORTUNITY". More needs to be done about things like limiting a group of people from taking "part" of a company public, then with their stock control, assigning a board that dilutes the stock by stealing it back through stock grants to themselves.

Seriously, it is AMERICA, feel free to leave all of your money to our wonderfully MORAL government upon your death. As for me, I will leave it to those I think will make the world a better place. And that may just include my children that I raised to have moral values.

I have an idea for your next stupid book...

I have been an insulin dependent diabetic for my whole life... whoa is me, NOT FAIR! I have an idea!!!! Why not make every one give all of their organs to donor programs upon death? That would have given me an equal opportunity to live a fair life.

Format: Paperback
The author takes too long to say too little. Essentially the claim is that capitalism should be combined with strict redistribution of wealth upon death. No serious thought is given to the effects of this "solution." Don't waste your time. If you want to understand capitalism, read Hazlitt, not Haslett.
