Utopia of Usurers is divided into two major parts. The second part is an assemblage of the author's journalistic articles. In the first part, G.K. Chesterton takes to task the theories, claims, and pragmatic fallout of unrestrained capitalism. Readers will come to understand the meaning behind Chesterton's classic paradoxical maxim: "Too much capitalism does not mean too many capitalists, but too few capitalists." In the wake of the bank, housing, and student loan crises, either our times are ripe for Utopia of Userers, or Utopia of Userers is ripe for our times. This volume is part of a series of WISEBLOOD CLASSICS of PHILOSOPHY, a run of books that includes out-of-print or hard to find classic novels and criticism. Other releases include the works of Marx and Bastiat. In addition, through our Wiseblood Classics series, we have reintroduced works of Balzac and Gogol, Dostoevsky and Melville to a new generation of readers.
