Capitalism is the exploitation of man by man; Communism is the exact opposite.
Capitalism is an organized system to guarantee that greed becomes the primary force of our economic system and allows the few at the top to get very wealthy and has the rest of us riding around thinking we can be that way, too - if we just work hard enough, sell enough Tupperware and Amway products, we can get a pink Cadillac.Michael Moore
I think it is important for all those young out there, who someday hope to play real football, where you throw it and kick it and run with it and put it in your hands, a distinction should be made that football is democratic, Capitalism, whereas soccer is a European socialist sport.
Schumpter's daring and dashing entrepreneur is now a legendary figure from the distant past - if not from the mythology of Capitalism - or is to be found only in the demimonde of business, founding new ice cream parlors or "deep freeze subscription clubs".paul a. baran
The destruction of the natural world is not the result of global Capitalism, industrialisation, 'Western civilisation' or any flaw in human institutions. It is a consequence of the evolutionary success of an exceptionally rapacious primate. Throughout all of history and prehistory, human advance has coincided with ecological devastation.john n. gray
"American Capitalism has helped finance the communist take over of the world. Somebody is going to answer to God for this."kent hovind
If you want to see the acceptable face of Capitalism, go out to an oil rig in the North Sea.William Randolph Hearst
It is generally conceded that mercantile Capitalism preceded and prepared the ground for modern industrial Capitalism.roll, eric, baron roll of ipsden
Whatever his merits as an economist, Hume's place as one of the foremost exponents of Capitalism is clearly established. His views on the landed interest and his recognition of self-interest and his desire for accumulation as the driving forces of economic activity in his time helped to consolidate the forces that were struggling to add political power to the economic supremacy which they had already achieved.roll, eric, baron roll of ipsden
Like many works of literature , Hollywood chooses for its villains people who strive for social dominance through the pursuit of wealth , prestige , and power . But the ordinary business of Capitalism is much more egalitarian: It's about finding meaning and enjoyment in work and production .
Massive concentration of financial power, accompanied by the machinations of finance capital, can as easily de-stabilize as stabilize Capitalism.
Capitalism only works well when it has a strong opposition, because that forces it to be more egalitarian than it wants to be.
Capitalism inevitably and by virtue of the very logic of its civilization creates, educates and subsidizes a vested interest in social unrest.joseph schumpeter
Capitalism is a social system based on the recognition of individual rights, including property rights, in which all property is privately owned.
Capitalism is the fullest expression of anarchism, and anarchism is the fullest expression of Capitalism.
The American capitalists are richer and stronger than their counterparts in other lands. They are also younger and more ignorant, and therefore more inclined to seek a rough settlement of difficulties without diplomatic subtlety and finesse. All that does not change the fact that American Capitalism operates according to the same laws as the others, is confronted with the same fundamental problems, and is headed toward the same catastrophe.james p. cannon
We're subject to the same forces of Capitalism that have built the entire American economy. Strong returns induce more capital flow, which creates more competitors, and you have to evolve and get better, or you die.kenneth griffin
Once socialism replaces Capitalism, reason will determine the policies of states.kenneth waltz
The progressive historical role of Capitalism may be summed up in two brief propositions: increase in the productive forces of social labour, and the socialisation of that labour. But both these facts manifest themselves in extremely diverse processes in different branches of the national economy.
Our feminist culture at the present moment is completely dependent on Capitalism . My grandmother was sill scrubbing clothes on the back porch on a washboard !camille paglia
A triumphalist corporate Capitalism, free at last of the specter of Communism, has mobilized its economic power to relentlessly marginalize all nonmarket values; to subordinate every aspect of American life to corporate "efficiency" and the bottom line; to demonize not only government but the very idea of public service and public goods.ellen willis
If there was never any difference between the value of commodities someone desired to sell and buy on the market, then no-one would ever desire to accumulate wealth. But an essential feature of Capitalism is the existence of a group of agents with precisely that intention.
The struggle against war and its social source, Capitalism, presupposes direct, active, unequivocal support to the oppressed colonial peoples in their struggles and wars against imperialism. A 'neutral' position is tantamount to support of imperialism.
