Illuminations: Best and Kellner

We contest Kelly’s metaphysic of the new economy and new technology, arguing that he illicitly collapses technology and the economy into nature, using nature metaphors to legitimate the new forms of economy and organization. Kevin Kelly, former editor of The Whole Earth Review, cofounder of the Well, promoter of various cyberevents like the Hackers Convention, and now Executive Editor of Wired, is being presented as a prophet of the New Economy with the publication of his book New Rules for the New Economy. Kelly argues we need new paradigms, new ideas, and new practices to make sense of and deal with the tumultuous changes that we are undergoing due to the global restructuring of the economy, the proliferation of new technologies, rapid social, political, and cultural change, and the emergence of new modes of thought. Kelly’s Out of Control opens with nine chapters outlining some of the new paradigms of thinking about life and technology, followed by five chapters on the new economy and social system, and ten concluding chapters sketching parts of his own synthetic vision. Brand moved from countercultural ecological perspectives to affirm the new computer technology, helping push the New Age intelligentsia, including Kelly, into affirmation of new technologies. 

In Kelly, old market ideologies thus return in a new hip pseudo-scientific clothing, recycling old concepts for the new millennium. Second, if one wants to circumnavigate the new scene, Kelly argues that we need new maps and compasses. Kelly misses how, overall, old divisions persist, as competition between major economic units intensifies, as the gap between the world’s rich and poor grows wider every year, as new conflicts between ethnic and religious groups explode, and as new fragmentations are being created in the turbulence of economic and cultural change, providing a welter of competing ideologies, identities, and social groups. Probably Kelly means that individual computers in the home or office are no longer as significant as the network, a claim no one would deny, but this above example is emblematic of Kelly’s propensity to cloak the obvious in the forms of aphoristic gnomicisms. Kelly fails to grasp the dialectic of contemporary capitalism that is both more organized and disorganized than previously, that is generating at once new forms of centralization and decentralization, and that is thus promoting both new forms of homogenization and standardization as it proliferates difference, fragmentation, and variety. 

Schumpeter is becoming the new dominant ideologue of capital, revered by Kelly, Gilder and other apologists for the new capitalism. All in all, Kelly is the Dr. Pangloss of the postmodern age, never tiring of declaring network capitalism the best of all possible worlds.

Justifying Sexism in Students for a Democratic Society – bluestockings magazine

Several historians, and myself to some extent, believe that this vicious cycle was only broken when women’s groups themselves broke off from the sexist SDS. Students for a Democratic Society was indeed the largest student network of the American New Left Movement. One fact is clear, however: despite its heavy dependence on membership of women, SDS for a very long time did not explicitly state women’s liberation as one of its goals. Eventually the result of radical feminist discontent was the breaking-up of student groups like SDS and the creation of new women’s groups such as the Feminists, Radical Feminists, Bread and Roses, Redstockings, and Women’s International Conspiracy from Hell. On the other hand, the politicos-people who believed capitalism caused women’s oppression-tended to place the burden of sexism on women, rather than on flaws in how SDS was run. 

Male dominance over women is not very different from a mother’s domination over her children. The solution to women’s woes, according to Salzman-Webb, was to look at the example of the Vietnamese woman, who, by militantly fighting free market forces alongside men, garnered the other sex’s respect in society. Contemporaries also couldn’t give up the fact that sexism predated capitalism, and that historically one of the first forms of women’s emancipation actually was provided by industry: women were given an avenue of earning money outside of the home. From a politico perspective, the woman boss is herself the product of an inferior system that has made her ill equipped to lead. A woman boss will only prevent skilled women from cropping up and will profit off of popular women myths and other functions of capitalism. 

Women’s oppression in SDS was visible not only in distant factories or corporate offices but in everyday meetings held at local college chapters of the student organization. In the fight against capitalism, for example, women began breaking from SDS to join groups like the more radical Weathermen and Revolutionary Youth Movement II. Although the two groups inherently disdained the call for women’s liberation as much as SDS did, Barber points out that the very fact that male supremacy was verbally addressed by the groups made them attractive to women. A linguistic legitimation of women’s concerns over sexism made the two groups’ campaign against the system more appealing that that of SDS. Others joined groups that fought purely against sexism. 

The politico argument claimed: 1) Women are oppressed by capitalism, as opposed to by men, and 2) Women aren’t ready to fight off capitalism just yet because of the inadequate skills capitalism has offered them.

‘Compassionate capitalism,’ another name for social entrepreneurship

Low has been leading the nonprofit organization that promotes social entrepreneurship. Low was in Seoul to attend and deliver a key note speech at Global Entrepreneurship Week 2017. Social Innovation Park President Penny Low.The following are excepts of the interview. Low: The vision of Social Innovation Park is to build a more inclusive, sustainable and mindful world by providing platforms for collaborations and partnerships. It has been around for 11 years now and given birth to some 100 social enterprises. 

Social entrepreneurs should be even more creative, even more innovative. Social entrepreneurs need to have compassion for everything. Another name for social entrepreneurship is compassionate capitalism. Low: In the short term, you use negative tax system and fiscal policies to address the income distribution gap. Low: There are many medical-tech startups that are getting to the space. 

The company might not have started as a social enterprise, but it clearly has social missions itself. Low: Find the right person to spearhead. It’s very important – the person who is going to make the decisions.

GamerGate Critic Brianna Wu Booted by Fellow SJW’s for Defending Capitalism

I believe wealth inequality is one most serious issues we face today. I think capitalism has gone awry since 2000, and needs regulation. I ALSO believe that within that flawed system, good can come out of it. I think we can improve the world through technology. ArchivistBecks I disagree strongly w her opinion but don’t see why I should hate her more for it than, like, everyone else in tech.

The Martin Luther King, Jr., Research and Education Institute

In early 1967 King stepped up his anti-war proclamations, giving similar speeches in Los Angeles and Chicago. The speech was drafted from a collection of volunteers, including Spelman professor Vincent Harding and Wesleyan professor John Maguire. King’s address emphasized his responsibility to the American people and explained that conversations with young black men in the ghettos reinforced his own commitment to nonviolence. To change course, King suggested a five point outline for stopping the war, which included a call for a unilateral ceasefire. To King the Vietnam War was only the most pressing symptom of American colonialism worldwide. 

The immediate response to King’s speech was largely negative. Both the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and Ralph Bunche accused King of linking two disparate issues, Vietnam and civil rights. Despite public criticism, King continued to attack the Vietnam War on both moral and economic grounds.

War -Ayn Rand Lexicon

Wars are the second greatest evil that human societies can perpetrate. By the nature of its basic principles and interests, it is the only system fundamentally opposed to war. Men who are free to produce, have no incentive to loot; they have nothing to gain from war and a great deal to lose. Economically, wars cost money; in a free economy, where wealth is privately owned, the costs of war come out of the income of private citizens-there is no overblown public treasury to hide that fact-and a citizen cannot hope to recoup his own financial losses by winning the war. Let those who are actually concerned with peace observe that capitalism gave mankind the longest period of peace in history-a period during which there were no wars involving the entire civilized world-from the end of the Napoleonic wars in 1815 to the outbreak of World War I in 1914. 

World War I was started by monarchist Germany and Czarist Russia, who dragged in their freer allies. World War II was started by the alliance of Nazi Germany with Soviet Russia and their joint attack on Poland. Observe that in World War II, both Germany and Russia seized and dismantled entire factories in conquered countries, to ship them home-while the freest of the mixed economies, the semi-capitalistic United States, sent billions worth of lend-lease equipment, including entire factories, to its allies. If men want to oppose war, it is statism that they must oppose. Capitalism wins and holds its markets by free competition, at home and abroad. 

A market conquered by war can be of value only to those advocates of a mixed economy who seek to close it to international competition, impose restrictive regulations, and thus acquire special privileges by force. If nuclear weapons are a dreadful threat and mankind cannot afford war any longer, then mankind cannot afford statism any longer. Let all those who are actually concerned with peace-those who do love man and do care about his survival-realize that if war is ever to be outlawed, it is the use of force that has to be outlawed.

Whole Foods CEO believes capitalism has higher purpose

At its core, and true to Mackey’s ability to avoid those hard-and-fast labels, the book out this week delivers a pointed critique on how capitalism can lead business astray if its practice isn’t grounded in a sound ethical foundation. For much of American industrial history, Mackey said, free-market capitalism was underpinned by a sense of Judeo-Christian values. That ethical underpinning has eroded as American society has grown increasingly secular, Mackey said. As humanity has evolved, their argument goes, so also must business evolve to integrate the needs of all the stakeholders. When vendors argued that Whole Foods didn’t put them on equal terms with customers and employees, for example, the company added suppliers to its list of core stakeholders. 

When animal rights activists picketed the company’s annual meeting in 2003, Mackey was initially offended by their accusations. After meeting with them and studying the issue, he wrote, he overhauled Whole Foods’ animal welfare standards and became a vegan. Those who have followed Whole Foods know that Mackey has drawn his fair share of critics in recent years, including government regulators who investigated him after he posted online messages about the company online under a pseudonym. Ultimately, it’s that notion of a constantly evolving and progressing consciousness that lies at the heart of both Mackey’s ardent support for – and his concerns about the direction of – free-market capitalism today. Once, underpinned by an ethics of compassion and care, capitalism created more value for humanity than any other political or economic framework in history, he said. 

As business rediscovers a higher sense of purpose – one that seeks to create value for employees, suppliers, investors and customers alike – it can create value for all stakeholders, he said. Because humanity is more conscious today than ever before, he argued, business has the capacity integrate a new, necessary ethical foundation on which capitalism can thrive and benefit humanity as a whole.

Theodor Adorno and “Negative Dialectics”

IDENTITY Max Horkheimer and Theodor Adorno wrote their critique of the culture of Western civilization, Dialectic of Enlightenment during the Second World War. Perhaps it took the magisterial pessimism of Theodor Adorno in Negative Dialectics to articulate the true extent of the Fall of humanity outside the bounds of the Enlightenment. In order to do so, Adorno continued his critique of philosophy, a critique that went beyond the abstract realm of thought and grappled with the implications of the refusal to remember the past so prevalent in West Germany. Later Jean-François Lyotard would use deconstruction married to Adorno to discuss the Holocaust in terms of what he called the differend and the forced silence of those who were outside the dialectic. Like Benjamin who insisted on examining an object in its historical particularity, Adorno asserted that the danger of identity thinking could be averted through Negative Dialectics, which assesses relations among things according to the criteria the object had of itself. 

Adorno took up the Dialectic in order to negate the presumed progression from one term to the other. Most importantly, Adorno has eliminated the linear teleology of the Dialectic and once the possibility of progressive movement is negated within the constellation, the point of origin-Nothingness-is eliminated. As a Holocaust survivor, Adorno was profoundly suspicious of the universal. In an abstract way that is also concrete and psychological, it is important for Adorno that one recognizes not just that which as been refused but also to come to terms with one’s guilt for having turned away from the contradictions within the dialectic. Adorno insisted upon critical thinking, which was a moral imperative. 

Adorno had recurring dreams of being sent to the gas chambers and found himself not just a Survivor but also an alien in his own homeland. In his parting thoughts, Adorno wrote these famous lines,.

Salesforce’s Integrated Philanthropy Model – Forbes 400 Summit | Forbes

Good corporate citizenship is a theme of the Davos celebrations. Admittedly, even fewer, just 5%, named CSR in its own right as the single most important criterion; but one might add to this the additional 24% who said that the reputation and integrity of the brand, to which good corporate citizenship presumably contributes, matter most. From an ethical point of view, the problem with conscientious CSR is obvious: it is philanthropy at other people’s expense. Advocates of CSR typically respond that this misses the point: corporate virtue is good for profits. The trouble is, CSR that pays dividends, so to speak, is unlikely to impress the people whose complaints first put CSR on the board’s agenda. 

Profit-maximising CSR does not silence the critics, which was the initial aim; CSR that is not profit-maximising might silence the critics but is unethical. In a new book, co-written with Karen Southwick, Mr Benioff argues that corporate philanthropy, done right, transforms the culture of the firm concerned*. Unlike some advocates of CSR, Mr Benioff says he opposes government mandates to undertake such activities. In any case, if Mr Benioff is right, and CSR done wisely helps businesses succeed, compulsion should not be needed. Lack of compulsion is exactly what is wrong with current approaches to CSR, say many of the NGOs that first put firms on the spot for their supposedly unethical practices. 

CSR was conjured up in the first place because government action was deemed inadequate: orthodox politics was a sham, so pressure had to be put directly on firms by organised protest. Ten years on, instead of declaring victory, as well they might, disenchanted NGOs like Christian Aid are coming to regard CSR as the greater sham, and are calling on governments to resume their duties.

Some 200 guests were wined, dined and entertained among the Old Masters by the great pianist Alfred Brendel, long a friend of Sir Ronald’s. Sir Ronald is altogether more sophisticated and urbane. On both sides of the Atlantic, private-equity firms manage funds that buy big controlling stakes in firms, sometimes taking public firms private. The old differences between America and Europe have vanished as private-equity firms of every nationality fight for the same deals, and the same capital to invest, everywhere. Private-equity firms have mostly struggled with succession, says Josh Lerner of Harvard Business School. 

Teddy Forstmann’s failure to find a successor means that his firm, Forstmann Little, is unlikely to survive him. In the late 1990s, he and Apax’s other partners started to discuss how the baton could be handed on to the next generation of leaders in a timely, efficient way that let the departing partners take money out without seriously weakening the firm. They adopted a retirement age ranging from 55 to a mandatory ceiling of 60-against which Sir Ronald has now bumped. It remains to be seen if Apax can thrive without Sir Ronald, for all his efforts to leave it in great shape. A new strategy requiring generalists in Apax’s leveraged transactions group to specialise in a particular industry has not been greeted with universal enthusiasm within the firm. 

Sir Ronald is now expected to devote his energy to two causes long close to his heart. Sir Ronald believes that economic growth for the Palestinians is crucial if there is to be lasting peace with Israel.

We just set our salaries by… voting?

The employees aren’t on the same team as each other – some got one number, some got another. When the question first came up for me, I didn’t know how to reliably compute that number, and it felt overly complex for that moment in time. On Monday, the salary of every employee at Figure 53 will be set by a popular vote. In other words, I asked our team to set their own salary. First, the salaries of our current team have all settled down to a single number, across the board. 

Everyone knows how much money we’re bringing in each day, and I do periodic status updates of how much we have in the bank, what our expenses are each month, etc. Bigger in talent, bigger in vision, bigger in capacity, bigger in skill, bigger in responsibility. Let’s see what happens if I ask people to choose their own salaries. I ran the numbers, I shared that process with the team, and concluded that, yes, this new number could fit. See, I voted the number I was thinking of choosing, if I had just done it on my own. 

Something between my understanding of the state of the company and their understanding of the state of the company placed their valuation just slightly higher than the number I chose. Not much higher, so if I’d just picked a number on my own and declared it by virtue of authority, I doubt anyone would have complained.

It’s the form of capitalism practiced by every democracy in the world, including China (which is not a democracy. Compassionate Capitalism works under the stricture that those individuals who can prosper under the free-enterprise system can keep the fruits of their labor and amass wealth – up to a point. There has to be something left over for those who cannot be entrepreneurs. Pure Capitalism doesnt leave anything or leaves little for the non-capitalists. The trouble starts when capitalists believe that they do not owe the non-capitalists anything when they have amassed their wealth because of them.

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.

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.

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.

4 Common Capitalism Myths Debunked

The simple fact is, despite its importance to our daily lives, relatively few people have a strong grasp of what causes economic growth and why markets are so central to continuously rising standards of living. In my teaching, I have encountered several myths or misperceptions about capitalism from students as well as individuals outside the classroom. Similar to language, the market economy was not created by a single individual or group but evolved over a long period based on the interactions of many people. Unlike socialism, which attempts to impose rules and institutions regardless of their conformity to human nature or desires, markets arise out of our human qualities. The rules and institutions that facilitate the ability of markets to perform are discovered as we discover ourselves and in the way we interact with one another. 

The idea that absent market capitalism would create greater shared wealth within society continues to permeate the thinking of a great deal of people. Importantly, the evidence is clear that this decline in poverty has happened as countries have come to embrace market capitalism as the way forward – especially China and India. The term stuck and has led to some confusion about why markets actually work. As Adam Smith recognized, when individuals are permitted to pursue their self-interest through markets, they are amazingly good at finding ways of bettering not only themselves but society as well. The fact is, while the accumulation of capital is a feature of a market economy, it’s certainly not exclusive to it. 

Second, over the long run, society in its entirety benefits as a result of markets. Markets also produce products and services that improve our lives in ways that our ancestors could never have dreamed.

Catechism of the Catholic Church

2333 Everyone, man and woman, should acknowledge and accept his sexual identity. II. THE VOCATION TO CHASTITY. 2337 Chastity means the successful integration of sexuality within the person and thus the inner unity of man in his bodily and spiritual being. Sexuality, in which man’s belonging to the bodily and biological world is expressed, becomes personal and truly human when it is integrated into the relationship of one person to another, in the complete and lifelong mutual gift of a man and a woman. The alternative is clear: either man governs his passions and finds peace, or he lets himself be dominated by them and becomes unhappy. 2353 Fornication is carnal union between an unmarried man and an unmarried woman. 

III. THE LOVE OF HUSBAND AND WIFE. 2360 Sexuality is ordered to the conjugal love of man and woman. The conjugal love of man and woman thus stands under the twofold obligation of fidelity and fecundity. The Sacrament of Matrimony enables man and woman to enter into Christ’s fidelity for his Church. 2387 The predicament of a man who, desiring to convert to the Gospel, is obliged to repudiate one or more wives with whom he has shared years of conjugal life, is understandable. 2390 In a so-called free union, a man and a woman refuse to give juridical and public form to a liaison involving sexual intimacy. 2393 By creating the human being man and woman, God gives personal dignity equally to the one and the other. Each of them, man and woman, should acknowledge and accept his sexual identity.

Compassion – RJ’s Corner

This is the final post on looking for the U.S. number one export. Maybe I am just an idealistic dreamer but I am hoping that this one is our actual number one export. I don’t know exactly where we stand as far as our supporting emergency relief efforts around the world but I hope we are close to the top. At least by some of us,during others times of emergency is indeed noble. 

Then there is the shipments of grain to starving countries. To watch those massive ships being loaded with thousands of bags of food makes me proud. In 2007 over 26,000, mostly local, doctors, nurses and other medical professionals, logistical experts, water and sanitation engineers and administrators provided medical aid in over 60 countries. Private donors provide about 80% of the organization’s funding, while governmental and corporate donations provide the rest, giving MSF an annual budget of approximately US$400 million. Yes, I realize that the above could be accomplished by less than one percent of the country’s population but sometimes just a small percentage can affect how a much larger population is viewed. 

As an example of that just look at how Bin Ladin caused all Muslims to be viewed in a negative light by many. There are those around today who insist that in order to meet our budgets these types of government-funded things must be eliminated, or at least severely curtailed. Here I am the naive person that I am hoping, or maybe just dreaming, that much of the rest of the world view our number one export our compassion for others.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the 32nd President of the United States of America from 1933-45. Franklin Roosevelt met Eleanor, his fifth cousin, in 1902. The Roosevelt marriage collapsed in 1918 when Eleanor discovered Franklin had a lover. In 1928 Franklin Roosevelt was elected governor of New York, despite a narrow victory in the state by Republican presidential candidate Herbert Hoover. Hoover tried to coordinate national policy with FDR during the long interregnum between the November election and the March 4 inauguration, but Roosevelt refused to cooperate. 

With Roosevelt strongly supporting France and Britain, the Communist Party USA at Moscow’s direction began attacking Roosevelt in the wildest terms and did so for the next twenty-two months. Roosevelt meanwhile moved right, and brought into top jobs the GOP vice presidential nominee from 1936, Frank Knox and conservative Republican lawyer Henry Stimson, who took over the War Department. Roosevelt had his closest election in 1944, with a subdued contest that was decided by turnout of FDR allies in the cities and labor unions, and increasingly among soldiers. Many credit Roosevelt with helping the United States survive the Great Depression and with providing solid leadership during World War II. Others, especially conservatives, assert that he uselessly expanded the welfare state, abused executive powers, and badly botched diplomacy before and during World War II.

Myths of Capitalism: A Guide for the 99%

Nope, much more likely they will kick at your hands rather than reach down to help. The much better image is that of a pyramid and ladder where those who get up the ladder build a base beneath them, and should the ladder break or a gate be put up, they will be able to support each other-and find a much better safety than in Masada or Versailles. In case of disaster, go to a place where people know something about survival and find a friend on the rez. Seriously, those who live at the bottom of this society do know a lot about how to get by without much from it. For its mythic power, I give the 99 and 1% meme thumbs up! 

The fact of real Elite Control is much smaller than 1%, but slogans should be clear and message driven, not detail and nuance. We get to blame the poor and those who would waste all that money on social programs as we congratulate ourselves for being such stalwart folks of enterprise and service. The Shit Out of Luck are more aware of what they need to do than are those afraid of becoming one of them. They think their Cayman Stash is going to save them when the Shit Hits the Fan, but that is because they look up for their salvation instead of down into the heart of the earth where the real light is shining. In the revenue scam being pulled off by the rich to avoid paying what they should, it is the relatively rich that take a big hit followed by the more populous. 

The real wealth escalator begins above the casino where the millionaires play. Free college education and more, and we don’t have that sense of being shut out of opportunity. When we take off the funny glasses and look at what is, there is so much in common over here on the 99%, and so much that nobody wants to be part of in the 1%. I think we need to scare the shit out of a lot of people in the Faustline, warning them that the Big One is coming!

Running head KARL MARX ON CAPITALISM 1 Karl Marx on Capitalism Name Institution Course Professor Date KARL MARX ON CAPITALISM

Apparently, Karl Marx was right about the whole capitalism notion and philosophy based. This paper supports the fact that capitalism contained seeds of its own destruction as the discussion in this paper acknowledges, showing illustrations according to Karl Marx’s argument. Karl Marx was able to foresee capitalism had built destruction by its own seeds. Marx was well assure that the ideologies surrounding capitalism- ideologies like neoliberalism- were created as a move to cater for the interests of only the elite in the society particularly the elites in the economy. Production means within its disposal had the ability to exert control on not only production, but also on other mental production methods. 

Marx saw the ruling ideas as merely the ideal expression from those that enjoyed dominance over materials, and that these relationships made the class in possession- the elites, the ruling class in the society. Marx may not have lived long enough to see his words, his thoughts, his ideas, and what he may have envisioned come to pass and become a reality in the world. As he has been referred to in some circles by critics and scholars alike, Marx may have been an astronomer and not an astrologer as far as history is concerned. Karl Marx showed that he possessed knowledge on the ability of capitalism to adapt and innovate. As people witness and encounter capitalism get to a point of denouement, with globalism seeming to disintegrate, Karl Marx is undoubtedly the most important and probably the most accurate critic as far as capitalism is concerned. 

Beyond reasonable doubt, Karl Marx can be termed to be the most influential philosopher. Having lived between May 5 1818 and March 14 1883, Marx was also an economist, a journalist, and a socialist- particularly a revolutionary socialist.

Amway Founders Heritage & Values: Fundamentals of Success

Market Capitalism and Caring for “the Least of These” – in All things

Earlier this year Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation, The Joy of the Gospel, received a lot of attention from the mass media, so I decided to read it. I started reading it and my spirits were immediately lifted by the exuberance of the opening pages. The joy of the gospel about which Pope Francis speaks so eloquently in his apostolic exhortation comes from living one’s life in Christ. A most significant part of that life of joy comes in loving our neighbor, especially that neighbor who is one of the least that Christ talks of in Matthew 25 with such compassion. How we can best love and serve that neighbor is not always easy to determine in our modern economy but a look at the Pope’s discussion of the social dimensions of the gospel, especially his emphasis on the workings of the free market and its exploitation of the poor, might give us some direction. 

Some people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world. There are theologians who argue that the poor benefit greatly by a capitalistic system. If we took a survey of poverty around the world, I suspect we would find it difficult to discern a measurable trickle-down effect from modern capitalism. Certainly statistics on American wealth and poverty indicate that the top 1 or 5 percent are getting wealthier, almost everyone else is getting poorer, and income disparity of astounding proportions is still wretchedly apparent. What concerns me as a Christian, is the way so many Christians preach Free Market capitalism as if it is a doctrine of the Christian faith. 

Most Christians I encounter who are in business or banking or business education at the college level or a part of that amorphous group called the Religious Right view the Free Market with benign acceptance. For them, John Schneider and Novak speak with more authority than the Pope or Kuyper.

Poverty Capitalism: Interview with Ananya Roy

Ananya Roy: Microfinance is one of those rare poverty alleviation ideas whose popularity cuts across the ideological spectrum. Proponents of social justice have hailed microfinance as an instrument to fight the redlining of the poor by exclusionary financial institutions. Although microfinance is not a substantial sector in the budgets of multilateral and bilateral donors, it is quite literally everywhere in the world of development, repeatedly touted as a poverty panacea. New portals of development, such as Kiva.org, have also made it possible for the globally minded citizens of the global North to feel an immediate and intimate connection to microfinance and to the poor women who are most often microfinance borrowers. There are at least two distinct paradigms at work within the world of microfinance: one where microfinance is a global financial industry and an increasingly profitable asset class; the second where microfinance is a part of an overall package of pro-poor development. 

Ananya Roy: Yes, this is a fundamental contradiction that lies at the heart of microfinance, and indeed many other poverty-alleviation efforts as well. Many proponents of microfinance see it as an alternative to state-led development, and as testament to the entrepreneurial efforts of the poor. Ananya Roy: Microfinance bears many of the characteristics of subprime lending. Very few genres of microfinance tackle such issues; those that do not systematically depoliticize the question of poverty. Josh Leon: Microfinance has long been applied in rural settings, an obvious place to look for the world’s poor. 

Ananya Roy: Many poverty alleviation interventions have been developed and implemented in rural areas-such as the famous conditional cash transfer programs of Mexico and Brazil and the microfinance programs of Bangladesh. Ananya Roy: Your poetic question is about microfinance but it also speaks to broader trends-to millennial challenges and hopes.

why is capitalism good

That’s why i think capitalism has it’s strong propaganda too and i don’t see any different between propaganda’s of capitalism and socialism. If we analyze their situation we see that good socialism is better than bad capitalism while socialism is for people and not for millionaires. Yes today i think that good socialism is better than bad capitalism, but if someone will ask me which one is better for me, as person who born in post-soviet union country i choose Socialism for my country while capitalism failed in eastern European countries. The main argument that says capitalism is bad goes like this: people need to be controlled or the greedy and the powerful will use the good hard-working people of the earth and destroy the earth while they are at it. To understand why capitalism is good consider the alternative. 

Capitalism like democracy believes that men are basically good and when they act on their enlighten self-interest society as a whole is lifted to a higher level, just compare North Korea and South Korea. I live in Eastern Europe in a ex-communist country and for anyone who thinks capitalism is wrong or evil or does not work, should come here and see what the alternatives to capitalism did to the people of many countries. It should be noted that crony capitalism should not be confused with true capitalism. As outlandish as this may seem, capitalism is a good thing, maybe not the best system to have, but it is the best one we have got. The current American system of capitalism is rife with discrimination, sexism, and willingness to not reward people for their hard work. 

True capitalism does not discriminate, if two people do the same of work, then they should get the same amount of pay, regardless of gender, race, or anything else. Capitalism is a good thing as it provides us all a motivation and a chance to succeed; and don’t think for a minute that what we have today is capitalist, because it is not.
