Format: Paperback
The author offers a basic analysis of economic fundamentals and compares the capitalist and socialist viewpoints. Fundamental to his argument is the idea that personal profit motivates economic productivity like no other force, and that the maximum possible economic output is achieved in a system that utilizes that. He does acknowledge the evils of capitalism, but contends that the greater collective good is higher under capitalism than it would be under socialism. He emphasizes that his arguments are rooted in logic, not emotion, which is necessary when considering economics scientifically, but also acknowledges the importance of humanism and spends time discussing the application of humanist concerns within a capitalist system. Overall, the book is a fairly short and simple read that clearly and concisely explains simple economic concepts that are still relevant to modern society.

The author masterfully explains a topic that is often whitewashed, ignored or diverted in public education. He bursts the non-existant, Utopia bubble which has unfortunately already decayed this country beginning with the New Deal and Johnson's Great Society. Unfortunately, I would have liked to have seen more discussion of the basic, human need for Power which fuels both socialsm and inhuman forms of capitalism.

People who oppose socialism simply put are morons. They are opposing it not on its true merits but on logical fallacy. They often bring up Stalins Russia to discredit socialism. What Stalin created in Russia was the absolute opposite of socialism instead of the people and unions having control, Stalin and a few of his selected henchmen had the power over social and political systems in the country. What Stalin ran was an Oligarchy not a socialist republic. He called it socialism because the word was respected back then by intellectuals around the world.
His book was a disaster as a literary piece, the author is conformist fool who takes the worst aspects of animal nature and say this is the way nature programmed us; greedy, petty, and survivalist therefore we should act like it. This is an compassionateness cruel position to take.

Don't bother reading this book it is a waste of time. Just listen to Christine O'Donnel or any other tea party fool talk instead.

Capitalism works but it's not sustainable, because our planet has finite resources and destroying the environment as long as it gives wealth to private businesses is not a valid position to take, if we want live on this Earth for more than a 100 years.
