Critics of capitalism claim that it is unjust and immoral—never mind that it has advanced human prosperity far beyond anything imaginable just 200 years ago. Are the opponents of capitalism right? Is capitalism unjust and immoral? The dialogues of Solon and Tyro and the citizens of Threesville may have you changing your mind about the morality of capitalism by book's end.

From the Author:

Morality and Capitalism: A Dialogue on Freedom is a book for all who love liberty and believe in the American experiment in political economy.  I wrote Morality and Capitalism for people who know in their hearts that capitalism is moral, but have not always had words to explain that belief to their skeptical friends. I truly hope you enjoy reading Morality and Capitalism, whatever your political orientation.

From the Back Cover:

Morality and Capitalism: A Dialogue on Freedom is an excellent book for anyone wanting to understand the roots of the issues faced today. It details the single moral imperative with which we should all agree, regardless of political leanings, and explains why free market capitalism provides the best hope for a free, prosperous and happy society.

From Socrates, through Hobbes, Rousseau, Locke, Nozick and many more in between, the author weaves in the views of philosophers and economists throughout history to give those new to philosophy a brief tour of ideas that have influenced the development and breakdown of societies from the beginning of civilization.

Somewhat like the classic book "Economics in One Lesson" by Henry Hazlett, this book begins by breaking down a complex and deep topic into a single lesson, in this case, a moral imperative; then uses the rest of the book to show how that imperative relates to current issues. The author alternates between philosophical perspective, interactions of the residents of "Threesville" and thoughtful conversations between two friends, Solon and Tyro. This style makes the book both entertaining and easy to understand. Even for those not in agreement with classic liberalism, this book should prove thought provoking.

William Rollyson, Retired Russian linguist
