Publisher's Summary

The Communist Manifesto of 1848 - the blueprint for modern totalitarian government - promises utopia but delivers dictatorship, poverty and misery everywhere it's tried. Yet many of the tenets of this ideology endure among leftist thinkers, despite repeated and universal failure. The question is why?

In A Capitalist Manifesto, Gary Wolfram answers that question with a clear explanation of the only economic system compatible with individual liberty, social justice and freedom: Capitalism. From barter to free markets, Wolfram explains the nature of money, the creation of wealth and the brilliance of a system based not on the state but rather on millions of unique individuals deciding what is best.

Highly Recommend

After reading the Communist Manifesto and Mao's Red Book this is a breath of fresh air. No economic theory, just reality. I thought it would be more about what capitists believe but I love that it's basically an economics book. Learned so much! Excellent.

Required Reading

This book should be required reading for every American who cares about economics. In an easily understood way, the author lays out how the market works to bring supply and demand into equilibrium. It's straightforward presentation of both micro and macro economics shows there is no such thing as a free lunch - every government intervention has consequences which are often different. from those intended by the politicians who promoted them.

A wonderful review of the basics of economic liberty

It was well worth my time to review and more deeply understand the fundamentals that make liberty both pragmatically and idealistically preferable to government intervention and suppression of liberty

An absolute must!

The knowledge contained is easy to follow along with and understand. I read the book while listening to the recording to really let it all sink in.
