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.
Capitalism is the exploitation of man by man; Communism is the exact opposite.
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
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
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.
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 condition of possessing capital; the position of a capitalist; a system which favours the existence of capitalists.
The Internet has taken shape with startlingly little planning? The most universal and indispensable network on the planet somehow burgeoned without so muchasa boardofdirectors, never minda mergers-and- acquisitions department. There is a paradoxical lesson here for strategists. In economic terms, the great corporations are acting like socialist planners, while old- fashioned free-market Capitalism blossoms at their feet.James Gleick
But if Capitalism had built up science as a productive force, the very character of the new mode of production was serving to make Capitalism itself unnecessary.john desmond bernal
Free market Capitalism is the best path to prosperity!lawrence kudlow
The principal impact of foreign enterprise on the development of the underdeveloped countries lies in hardening and strengthening the sway of merchant Capitalism, in slowing down and indeed preventing its transformation into industrial Capitalism.paul a. baran
The inherent vice of Capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent virtue of Socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.winston churchill
The capacity to transform itself from the inside makes Capitalism a somewhat peculiar beast - chameleon-like, it perpetually changes it colour; snake-like, it periodically sheds its skin.david harvey
The bourgeoisie first betrayed society through Capitalism and finance, and now labor betrays it by embracing a scheme of things which sees profit only, not duty and honor, in work. This view will seem hopelessly unrealistic to those who do not admit that sentiment toward the whole is the only ultimate means of measuring value.richard weaver
One of the glaring failures of Capitalism is the continuing widespread existence of poverty - often extreme poverty. Even in the advanced economies, many millions of people endure terrible economic and social deprivation, despite the incredible wealth all around them.
All people, however fanatical they may be in their zeal to disparage and to fight Capitalism, implicitly pay homage to it by passionately clamoring for the products it turns out.ludwig von mises
