"American capitalism has helped finance the communist take over of the world. Somebody is going to answer to God for this."
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
Capitalism is the exploitation of man by man; Communism is the exact opposite.
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
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
Capitalism has been fully restored in Yugoslavia, as is well-known, but this Capitalism knows how to disguise. Yugoslavia portrays itself as a socialist state, but of a special kind, as the world has never seen it before! The Titoites even boast that their state has nothing in common with the first socialist state which emerged from the socialist October Revolution and which was founded by Lenin and Stalin on the basis of the scientific theory of Marx and Engels.enver hoxha
If you want to see the acceptable face of Capitalism, go out to an oil rig in the North Sea.William Randolph Hearst
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.
It is generally conceded that mercantile Capitalism preceded and prepared the ground for modern industrial Capitalism.roll, eric, baron roll of ipsden
They lived in abysmal misery, yet they had no prospect of a better tomorrow. They existed under Capitalism, yet there was no accumulation of capital.paul a. baran
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 .
Anarchism does not mean bloodshed; it does not mean robbery, arson, etc. These monstrosities are, on the contrary, the characteristic features of Capitalism. Anarchism, or Socialism, means the re-organization of society upon scientific principles and the abolition of causes which produce vice and crime.
Massive concentration of financial power, accompanied by the machinations of finance capital, can as easily de-stabilize as stabilize Capitalism.
If it were necessary to give the briefest possible definition of imperialism , we should have to say that imperialism is the monopoly stage of Capitalism .
Capitalism is the exploitation of man by man. Yes? Well socialism is exactly the reverse.len deighton
Capitalism, in contrast, has existed for fewer than 300 years. If the entire history of Homo sapiens was a 24-hour day, then Capitalism has existed for two minutes.
Capitalism is using its money; we socialists throw it away.
For the West, the enemy was not "socialism" but Capitalism. How to tame and subdue the polar bear, how to take over the talent, the science, the technology, how to buy out the human capital, how to acquire the intellectual property rights?michel chossudovsky
Capital, like Capitalism, seems an overrated category.ernest gellner
The social relations of Capitalism have penetrated slowly into all spheres of life to make wage labour the general condition of existence only in fairly recent times.david harvey
The American agenda is sweeping everything before it, and although it's not perfect, the EU is better on environmental issues. It's a less rapacious form of Capitalism.Ken Livingstone
For the West, the enemy was not "socialism" but Capitalism. How to tame and subdue the polar bear, how to take over the talent, the science, the technology, how to buy out the human capital, how to acquire the intellectual property rights?
It is the welfare state that has made Capitalism, with all its attendant benefits of economic growth, politically feasible.
[Rock and the intellectual Left] must both be interpreted as parts of the cultural fabric of late Capitalism. Their success comes from the bourgeois’ need to feel that he is not bourgeois.Allan Bloom
