What is capitalism???

The government takes one from me and give to it you. I breed them and the government kills me and take all three. Capitalism isn’t the best government possible but it is the best in the world. The more money you make the more taxes the government takes. The more money they take, the more they can squander……………….and so it goes.

The World Dialogue: Can Capitalism be Compassionate?

Get social Capitalism has always won its battles against competing economic systems, whether it was feudalism in the 19th century or socialism and communism in the 20th century. Despite its relative success, it continues to battle its critics. Free market economics may have proved to be the efficient way to allocate scarce resources but concerns about rising inequality over the last three decades the world over have raised questions about whether it is the fairest way to allocate resources. The welfare state of the West, which is now bursting at the seams, was an attempt to show that capitalism can be compassionate. India’s obsession with redistributive policies like the MGNREGA shows similar intent. 

Governments are inefficient and often do not deliver the desired results. Both nations know capitalism and compassion intimately.

A compassionate teacher is a

Compassionate silence very well may be the truest form of compassion we can muster. The minute we open our mouths we run the risk of judgment and scorn, if not implicitly so then very possibly run the risk of what we say being inferred as judgment or scorn. Jane Austen, in Pride and Prejudice use the phrase at least twice to describe Darcy’s compassionate silence for Elizabeth and the new age meditations of manifestation it is compassionate silence that is listed as the very first step to manifesting ones dreams. As brutal and uncaring as the universe can seem, indeed its steady march towards total destruction or endless expansion of coldness and darkness would make it seem as a brutal place and yet surely the universe must be compassionate for it is truly silent on our pain and suffering.

Choice between communism and capitalism

Corporations can buy their way out of everything and get massive tax breaks while your average salary bloke ends up paying larger than his share…, ALL Taxes are passed along down the line to the individual. Inequality between rich and poor grows. US foreign policy apart from being influenced by lobbyists that represent foreign governments is also heavily influenced by oil&gas companies, financial industry and the weapons industry that need wars so that their weapons get sold. All these elements are able to get politicians to go so far because of unbridled capitalism that values access to capital over people. Politicians will take money and favors from anybody.

Hybrid Economics – the balance between capitalism and socialism

If you are an extreme capitalist, you’re probably wrong. If you are an extreme socialist, you’re probably wrong. The right answer lies somewhere in between these two extremes. Consider my widget company:In an extreme capitalism I can hire thieves to take my competitor’s truck fleet at night when he’s sleeping, or maybe just murder him outright to increase my profits. In an extreme socialism the government can tell me that they don’t approve of my widget business, or require me to operate my business according to their instructions. 

The right answer is to be able to pursue my own ideas the way that I want, but within the limits of civility.

FFM: Compassionate Conservative

I am a Republican who has taken a sabbatical until my party gets back to being what George Bush called a compassionate conservative. This is one who believes in free enterprise, competition and having a strong government to control free markets. These conservatives also recognize there are some objectives of society that are better overseen by government rather than the private sector. My Republican party recognizes free markets purpose is to help meet the needs of society. Society is not here to meet the needs of free markets. 

Government has the responsibility of being a fair referee ensuring our markets are indeed free and not controlled by a few entities depriving society of the wonders of competition. Many conservatives today forgot what Milton and Rose Friedman in their book, Capitalism and Freedom, said of the role of government in a free society. These functions are generally those providing benefits to society as a whole including defense, basic research and development, preservation and optimal utilization of our natural resources including its people, education, care for the poor and needy, building and maintaining the countries infrastructure and of course the protection of free markets from corruption and unscrupulous behavior. Sometimes both parties lose their way and presently it is my party, the Republican Party, that has gotten too far off track and needs to take corrective action. The Democrats have also made blunders including their handling of health care reform. 

We needed health care reform but it went too far and the Democrats, and the country, are now paying the price of not allowing sufficient Republican input into the passage of the bill.

Op-Ed: Capitalism and spirituality, part two – The Stanford Daily

Sadhguru has a huge following in India and internationally. This language, with Sadhguru’s brilliance and humor, has made him an appealing guru around Silicon Valley. Four years ago I attended another public conversation with Sadhguru at Stanford. Having gotten a glimpse of his economic and social ideas at that time, I wasn’t surprised to hear that he is now teaming up with a leader in the private equity world to talk about the compatibility of capitalism and spirituality. Sadhguru presented what struck me as a troubling version of trickle-down spiritual economics. 

Sadhguru proposed that he would spiritually transform the billionaires, and they would solve the problems of inequality and suffering among those who are economically below them. I am sure that when Sadhguru teaches meditation, pranayama and yoga asanas along with inspiring wisdom and delightful humor, to millionaires, billionaires and rising tech workers and entrepreneurs, they will feel better about themselves and become more effective at what they do. Perhaps corporate leaders will buy more massage chairs and other instruments of well-being for their employees; perhaps they will make more donations to good causes. The 2000 leading Indians, or the 85 billionaires, will for the most part resist, threaten, lie to and attack them. Another disturbing aspect of Sadhguru’s talk was his allusion to transformation in India. 

Modi has positioned himself as the promoter of business and economic growth and as the strong leader India needs. Googling Sadhguru + Modi will bring up videos of Sadhguru meeting with or speaking highly of Modi.

10 Different Types of Libertarianism

The popular sci-fi novel Jennifer Government describes a system that is very close to anarcho-capitalist. Civil libertarians believe that the government should not pass laws that restrict, oppress, or selectively fail to protect people in their day-to-day lives. Civil libertarians may or may not also be fiscal libertarians. Classical liberals agree with the words of the Declaration of Independence: That all people have basic human rights, and that the sole legitimate function of government is to protect those rights. Fiscal libertarians believe in free trade, low taxes, and minimal corporate regulation. 

Most traditional Republicans are moderate fiscal libertarians. Geolibertarians are fiscal libertarians who believe that land can never be owned, but may be rented. Libertarian socialists agree with anarcho-capitalists that government is a monopoly and should be abolished, but they believe that nations should be ruled instead by work-share cooperatives or labor unions instead of corporations. The philosopher Noam Chomsky is the best known American libertarian socialist. Like anarcho-capitalists and libertarian socialists, minarchists believe that most functions currently served by the government should be served by smaller, non-government groups. 

At the same time they believe that a government is still needed to serve a few collective needs, such as military defense. Neolibertarians are fiscal libertarians who support a strong military and believe that the U.S. government should use that military to overthrow dangerous and oppressive regimes.

Much to everyone’s surprise, we revealed that profits in a creative firm are not about money, but rather about CHOICES and maintaining CONTROL of your business. In David’s talk, he provided us with break from all the talk of numbers plus a terrific dose of inspiration. Sharing his ideas from his books – one titled Connected To Goodness and the other titled Compassionate Capitalism – David’s message featured his stories of success, failure, redemption, and purpose.

Conscious Capitalism Dallas

Recognizing that every business has a purpose that includes, but is more than, making money. By focusing on its Higher Purpose, a business inspires, engages and energizes its stakeholders. Recognizing that the interdependent nature of life and the human foundations of business, a business needs to create value with and for its various stakeholders. Like the life forms in an ecosystem, healthy stakeholders lead to a healthy business system. Human social organizations are created and guided by leaders – people who see a path and inspire others to travel along the path. 

Conscious Leaders understand and embrace the Higher Purpose of business and focus on creating value for and harmonizing the interests of the business stakeholders. They recognize the integral role of culture and purposefully cultivate Conscious Culture. This is the ethos – the values, principles, practices – underlying the social fabric of a business, which permeates the atmosphere of a business and connects the stakeholders to each other and to the purpose, people and processes that comprise the company.

Conscious Capitalism and Compassion – Wolff Professional Services

One of the best moments of my life occurred last week at The Mindful Leadership Summit in D.C. I attended a break out session titled Conscious Capitalism. As a child, I started creating businesses in my head. Never very interested in things that just filled my time or entertained me, but in things that affected the world. Creating businesses to meet people’s needs, creating jobs, and making things is what moved me. 

I persisted but with less joy than I once had. I have had my own business for 20 years, actually a number of my own businesses through out my life, but the business that provided for me and my son for the past 20 years. Leaving me at odds with my desire to love the power of businesses, but the inner knowledge that the way we do business, is askew. Remembering the men and women of my childhood, their anger about money, their resentment toward power, sometimes made it strange to be in business. I still loved business, and saw it’s potential. 

I cried in that break out session on Conscious Capitalism, because my heart was renewed. There are communities and leaders who are actively evolving the great gifts of business and creating tools for leaders to become conscious, and these leaders bring their intentional wisdom to the drivers of economy that lift people up. Read the book: Conscious Capitalism, join the communities, attend the events. This is compassionate business, compassionate leadership, mindful leadership at it’s best. Cheers to greater purpose and meaning in our world, and in our businesses!

A Defense of Capitalism and Free Markets as Millennials Flock to Socialism in Droves – Investment Watch Blog

A once prosperous and fully functioning democratic nation in South America became proof positive of the ultimate failure of socialism. Another South American country teaches us a valuable lesson on the failure of socialism. As America’s Millennials are increasingly drawn to socialism and disgusted by capitalism, it is important to point to the recent collapse of Brazil. Socialism breeds corruption and promotes criminal politicians to the top. Despite these two telling examples from South America, Millennials in the U.S. 

no longer see socialism as a dirty word. Mark Thornton, Senior Fellow at the Mises Institute and Book Review Editor of the Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics wrote an informative piece on mises.org bemoaning young Americans’ desire for socialism in the United States. A recent GenForward survey quantified Millennials’ support for socialism. Socialism is viewed as a kind of nationwide safe space, according to thin-skinned Millennials. For comparison’s sake, over half of Baby Boomers favor capitalism and only 26 percent support socialism. 

The numbers are in and America’s young adults appear to want socialism. Similar conclusions were found in a 2015 Reason-Rupe poll which revealed 58 percent of the same age group approved of socialism, up dramatically from a 2011 Pew poll that found 49 percent of young Americans viewing socialism positively. Supporters of socialism claim that capitalism cannot be trusted because humans are inherently greedy and selfish.

How Individuals and Corporations Participate

Karen Rands, founder of the Compassionate Capitalist Movement for Angel Investors, talks with author Mark Faust, trusted advisor to Corporate Executive Teams and author of Growth or Bust and High Growth Levers, about how individuals and corporations use Compassionate Capitalism to create wealth and grow their business. As a nationally recognized expert on Angel Investing, Karen has written the best selling book Inside Secrets to Angel Investing as a step by step guide for learning how to invest in private companies to bring innovation to the market, create jobs and create wealth for all those involved – Compassionate Capitalism. She believes busy executives can effectively diversify their portfolio to invest in entrepreneurs as a wealth creation strategy, and enjoy the passion and excitment of an entrepreneurial endeavor without incurring all the risk and challenges of being an entrepreneur. Mark’s company, Echelon Management International, works with both leaders of successfully growing companies who want to raise the bar as well as with companies in turnaround. Mark has worked with and interviewed many Fortune 500 CEO’s, hundreds of number one sales performers, and thousands of his client’s top customers. 

From this experience and insight, he discovered a corporate version of Compassionate Capitalism that is part of the pattern for success for those companies and executives.

Eanfar notes that money is not value itself; it represents value. Rather than focusing on money alone, he advises organizations to focus on theway value flows through their stakeholder ecosystems, which benefits all parties in the long run. Innovation: Artificial intelligence, cryptocurrency, and other technological innovations can be used for good or ill. Mr. Eanfar dedicates a chapter of the book to the impact of artificial intelligence [AI] on government and the economy.

In recent discussions of capitalist transformation, the notion of the ‘platform’ has come to play a prominent role in conceptualising our present circumstances and imagining our potential futures. There are many criticisms which can be raised of the platform metaphor, however we believe it provides a useful hook through which to make sense of how social, economic, political, cultural and technological factors are collectively contributing to systemic transformation. This intensive five week reading group explores platform capitalism, the growing focus on the platform and its implications for sociological and educational research. The meetings will take place from 4pm to 6pm in DMB 2S5 in The Donald McIntyre Building in the Faculty of Education at the University of Cambridge. This is a fifteen minutes walk from Cambridge train station and we welcome all attendees.

Ateneo de Davao University

Various models are surveyed with which the attempt is made to combine the two perspectives while respecting the distinctiveness of each. One such model proposed by St. Augustine, the coiner of the term ‘secular,’ relies on his distinction of the two cities, the City of God, and the Earthly City. Brian T. Trainor’s more nuanced interpretation of Augustine shows how a religious accommodation of the secular is enabled by the distinction between the secular domain as oriented to and open to the sacred, and the secular domain when it is opposed to and turned away from the sacred. 

This proposal is explored for its usefulness, for Muslims as well as Christians, in accepting the positive aspects of autonomous secularity without having to endorse the aspects contrary to a faith commitment.

What is a simile for compassionate

Compassionate silence very well may be the truest form of compassion we can muster. The minute we open our mouths we run the risk of judgment and scorn, if not implicitly so then very possibly run the risk of what we say being inferred as judgment or scorn. Jane Austen, in Pride and Prejudice use the phrase at least twice to describe Darcy’s compassionate silence for Elizabeth and the new age meditations of manifestation it is compassionate silence that is listed as the very first step to manifesting ones dreams. As brutal and uncaring as the universe can seem, indeed its steady march towards total destruction or endless expansion of coldness and darkness would make it seem as a brutal place and yet surely the universe must be compassionate for it is truly silent on our pain and suffering.

Rand Paul’s smackdown of Bernie Sanders is frickin’ fantastic

You look at a country like Venezuela, with great resources and an utter disaster where people can’t eat, devolving into violence. I think it’s important that we do have a debate ultimately in our country between socialism and communism and America and capitalism. Sen. Rand Paul’s smackdown of Sanders’ empty, predictable rhetoric on capitalism and America was an immediate hit on social media. RandPaul YES! 

Thank you for your explanation of American compassion. No word yet on how Bernie Sanders is nursing his wounds.

Turning Point USA: This pro-capitalism campus group beats back efforts to shut it down

Two recent victories scored by the nationwide campus activism group Turning Point USA show the relatively young but growing organization is fighting back against efforts to shut its clubs down – and winning. This week, a club the pro-capitalism group sought to form at a California campus was approved by administration after student government leaders voted to reject it. Last week, a Michigan university settled a lawsuit with Turning Point USA. As a result, its members may now travel the campus promoting free speech instead of in just a small corner of campus. Often, students seeking to form Turning Point USA chapters face an uphill battle. 

In the span of two years, for example, student government leaders at five different universities have refused to give the free market club official recognition as a student organization. Since 2015, student leaders at Santa Clara University, Northwestern University, Creighton University, Drake University and Hagerstown Community College denied Turning Point student chapters such recognition, which would generally give the group permission to reserve space for free on campus and receive a portion of student fee allocations for events. At Creighton, the ROTC student seeking to form the club at that Catholic university in Nebraska, Justin Carrizales, was rejected twice before finally securing approval in January. Turning Point USA is a relatively new nonprofit campus activism group that largely strives to promote fiscal responsibility, free markets and free speech issues and stays away from social issues. While the group has seen success and growth in recent years, the nearly half-dozen rejections at some campuses to form – even though overturned – is not the norm, according to Matt Lamb, director of Campus Integrity for TPUSA and a former student reporter for The College Fix. 

After the nonprofit legal organization Alliance Defending Freedom filed suit against the school on behalf of the club, administrators walked back their stance and revised their expressive activity policies to respect students’ First Amendment freedoms. The Hagerstown Community College administration settled a lawsuit after the student wishing to start the club sued. After being rejected 15-3 by the student senate this past fall, the club must wait until fall 2017 to renew its plea for recognition.

Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs, Compassionate Capitalism and Local Community Publications

Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs Inc. Maria Peck, previously the director of the ACE Women’s Center, will lead one of ACE’s biggest projects slated to begin this year. Peck’s focus will be on providing access to commercial loans of $50,000 and greater and being visible in the Hispanic community by giving presentations and collaborating with other organizations. Peck started working at ACE as a microlender after working with ACCION USA, owning her own business, and gaining more than 15 years of sales and marketing experience in Atlanta and New York. About Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs Inc.ACE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and CDFI loan fund that provides loans and business consulting services to help borrowers throughout Metro Atlanta and North Georgia create and grow stable, sustainable businesses that generate jobs. 

Founded in 1999, ACE has loaned more than $39 million to about 725 entrepreneurs, which has created or saved more than 6,200 jobs in Georgia. You don’t have to be a successful entrepreneur to create generational wealth if you can learn how to invest in those companies that have the potential to be the next big thing, according to Karen. Karen has been described by some as a dominant force in the entrepreneur and investor markets with her blog, published articles, frequent speaking engagements, and her Compassionate Capitalist radio show. She has been a frequent speaker and mentor within numerous Small Business and Economic Development initiatives and was the recipient of the Advocate of the Year award in 2016 at the Flight to Freedom Summit in San Ramon, California, for her work to promote Compassionate Capitalism. Karen left the corporate world over a decade ago, having been involved with many product launches, to pursue her passion for seeing innovation funded and to help the entrepreneur and investor community she served create thriving businesses. 

Karen immersed herself in the world of angel investing, first as the protégé to the founder of the Network of Business Angels. The power of microtargeting to a businesses exact demographic by supporting their local community publication. The power of content branding and the opportunity to be the only business in their industry to be allowed to submit content for the duration of their sponsorship.

50 years since the Panthers formed, Capitalism + Drugs still = Genocide

This article analyzes 1) addiction from a thoroughgoing, critical perspective, and 2) compares some widely accepted healing approaches with those of the Black Panther Party and the Rainbow Coalition-multinational, revolutionary-minded community groups that the Panthers inspired. Today, the concept that drug addiction is a medical issue that should be addressed with appropriate, coordinated public health measures is gaining ground though still not universally accepted. Capitalism does not work to comprehensively solve the problem of addiction among workers, as addiction itself, as well as its criminalization, serve to divert and tamp down the class struggle. From its inception in 1966, the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense led local and national struggles to challenge the oppression that weighed on the Black community and on all disenfranchised people. In reality, the drug epidemic is far worse today than it was 50 years ago when the Panthers confronted it as a major assault on oppressed communities. 

The Young Lords provided leadership and direction to those Puerto Ricans, Black people and poor whites looking to confront the underlying source of their pain and addiction. Defying convention, the Young Lords challenged the institutions in their community that turned their backs on the people. Inspired and trained by the Panthers – the architects of survival programs – other oppressed people, poor whites and radicalized young people organized themselves into the American Indian Movement, the Patriot’s Party and White Lightening, as well as many multi-national socialist formations across the country. New Recovery focuses on community education and political advocacy around issues of importance to the recovery community-for instance, insurance parity for mental health and addiction treatment, restoration of voting rights for felons convicted of drug crimes, alternatives to prison as an approach to the problem of addiction, and so on. People who work a strong program of recovery have the potential to become powerful organizers because they are principled people. 

The uplifting of communities necessarily touched masses of people. Only a new system, which prioritizes people’s needs over profits, can we make health care available to all poor and working people.

Are the Poor More Compassionate?

GREG GUTFELD, CO-HOST: So, according to a new study, the poor are more compassionate than the un-poor. I guess by this logic, we should re-elect President Obama because we now have more poor people than ever, and that could only be good because they’re good. The culture of compassion doesn’t explain why a lot of crime is poor on poor. Forty-four million people are on food stamps right now. A lot more great people under the Obama administration. 

MARSHALL: Well, you can, but obviously, you can’t – obviously according to the study from Berkeley, because the poor people don’t have the money. Rich people have money and I think we’re going to get -. The people who give money, I’m guessing a lot of them are rich. Every time that the left – sorry, Leslie – but the left gets the right to sit around and talk about who is better, rich people or poor people. Poor people identify with people who are poor, down and out because they are poor, they have been poor.

Compassionate Capitalism Archives

Pay attention to the soul of your business or you might miss incredible opportunities. Business is the most pervasive and influential force on the planet today. Its activities transcend national and international borders. Its activities are not unduly constrained by financial, political, cultural, ethnic, or religious concerns. The net of this is that business, as a prevalent and important force, has a moral responsibility to guide, enhance, value, and nourish the existence of all that it encounters. 

In the world today, the absolute opposite of this occurs. Business today seldom assesses the efficacy of its activities through the lens of anything but profit. Traditional capitalism forgets an important variable, that of happiness. The true purpose of business is to uplift the experience of existing. It is not to produce ever-cheaper goods and services. 

Compassionate capitalism is an economic system meant to make a lot of money, help a lot of people, and have a lot of fun. It is not to keep an avaricious and toxic economic model afloat and it is certainly not to make a profit.

Socialism is NOT Compassionate & Why This Should Matter to Christians

Christians should care about politics because, ultimately, we care about people. Government has an increasingly large influence on the lives of people, thus we cannot ignore politics. What we encounter in discussing societal issues today with Christians is that many think socialism is good. Socialism is government mandated activities or government control of assets. When the government redistributes wealth it even hurts the people it is trying to help! 

Every time the government gets involved in something, in the long run it hurts the economy. Socialism reduces the incentive to innovate and produce. Rights are God-given to personhood rather than something conferred by government. America’s Declaration of Independence explains that liberty-that is, freedom from government interference-is also a right. So liberals who say that something like government health care is a right in fact have it backwards. 

Government interference into health care tramples on liberty and thus tramples on our rights! We are not arguing that government has no role to play in society.

Compassion, Christianity or Consumerism? The True Meaning of Christmas

As a result, we have lost sight of the true meaning of Christmas, and celebrate it in ways that are in direct opposition to its original intent. This year, on Black Friday, I was reminded about the true meaning of Christmas. Black Friday has become as much a part of the holiday season in the United States as Thanksgiving and Christmas. 33 million evergreen conifers are purchased each year, at around $35 each, for a market of $1.16 billion in Christmas tree sales. This is not suggesting to abolish Christmas altogether, but if every U.S. household reduced their Christmas budget by only thirty-percent and contributed that money to impoverished communities, we would meet the forecast amount to end world hunger. 

This tale of Christmas we share is a stark contrast to the true story of St. Nicholas. Today, Christmas is a celebration that revolves around fulfilling greed, not need, at the expense of the poor. The real genius-work behind this big façade is the connection between Christmas and Christianity. Christmas marks the return of the sun after the winter solstice – the resurrection of light and the perseverance of unconditional love which nature manifests each year in the new life and returning warmth of springtime, from the desolate depths of winter. 

He saw the true meaning of Christmas and put an end to the charade. While his means were extreme, by stealing all the presents he learned that the real meaning of Christmas had nothing to do with exchanging gifts, but exchanging love. Let’s each of us be that Grinch, and take consumerism out of the Christmas mythology.

Capitalism’s stormy sea

Capitalism as a total world system is a relatively new part of human experience. By these measures capitalism is merely the blink of an eye. Economy was, as the social theorist Karl Polanyi has so brilliantly analysed, ‘socially embedded’ in such societies and subject to the prevailing values of that particular society rather than the kind of all-determining external force it has become under capitalism. Those who want to transform or even just tinker with our current system of corporate capitalism are confronted with a formidable task. One of the features of capitalism that has enabled it to survive is its ability both to create and to take advantage of its economic crises. 

Schumpeter saw this underlying attribute as a kind of positive resilience that keeps capitalism from collapsing under the weight of its own contradictions. Capitalism constantly puts these things at risk in its restless search for new avenues of profitable growth. Not only has capitalism shown great resilience in overcoming the periodic crises it has faced but it has also even been embraced by its one-time ideological opponents: state socialism in China and the countries of the former Soviet bloc. Our current phase of capitalism is underpinned by a much named but too little understood political philosophy called neoliberalism. Usually this is a phrase used by critics rather than proponents of capitalism. 

Under earlier forms of liberal democracy these could be counted on to play a moderately autonomous role in tempering capitalism. This makes for difficult terrain on which alternatives to capitalism must be built.

We Need Sustainable Capitalism

What is clear to us and many others is that market capitalism has arrived at a critical juncture. The financial crisis has reinforced our view that sustainable development will be the primary driver of economic and industrial change over the next 25 years. At the Harvard Business School Centennial Global Business Summit held earlier this month, the future of market capitalism was one of the principal themes discussed. We founded Generation Investment Management in 2004 to develop a new philosophy of investment management and business more broadly. Our approach is based on the long-term, and on the explicit recognition that sustainability issues are central to business and should be incorporated in the analysis of business and management quality. 

While certainly not a complete list, the causes of the current financial crisis include: short-termism, poor governance and regulation, misaligned compensation and incentive systems, lack of transparency, and in some firms, poor leadership and a dysfunctional business culture. Forty years ago, Robert F. Kennedy reminded Americans that the Dow Jones Industrial Average and Gross National Product measure neither our national spirit nor our national achievement. Business – and by extension the capital markets – need to change. Such investments ignore the reality of the climate crisis and its consequences for business. 

Business and markets cannot operate in isolation from society or the environment. Business and the capital markets are best positioned to address these issues. We need a more long-term and responsible form of capitalism.

It’s much more fashionable to attack Adam Smith these days than to read him. Yes, he favored economic liberalism, which wasn’t exactly in style in his time. There are two main drivers behind Smithian liberalism, neither of them cold or calculating. The foundation of Smith’s moral theory is the impartial spectator theory. Smith is well known for being an ardent free trader. 

The second driver of Smith’s brand of market capitalism is compassion for the poor. Liberalism properly understood – free markets, free trade, free migration, etc. Creates more wealth more quickly than any other economic system. In Smith’s time, the average person worldwide made around $3 per day. Today, in countries that have embraced liberalism, you can make $100 a day and consider yourself middle class. 

Rejecting liberalism means forcing the poor to miss out on the Great Fact. Smith favored liberalism because it is not only moral, it makes life better for the poor.

Why Pope Francis wants us to stop worshipping capitalism

Pope Francis’ upcoming visit to the U.S. next week is generating huge interest and expectation. Part of that excitement is rooted in the different tone the pope has taken on a number of issues, from marriage to the role of women in the church. He has also issued a tough critique of capitalism and called for more action on climate change. We kick off our coverage of the pope’s trip, which will continue all next week, with a look at those issues from our economics correspondent Paul Solman. 

It’s part of our weekly series Making Sense, which airs every Thursday on the NewsHour.
