Myths of Capitalism shows that tenets of the capitalist belief system – the sanctity of private property, the social benefits of profit, etc. – do not hold up under empirical scrutiny. It also addresses seminal issues such as: enforced scarcity resulting from technological advances in production; the historically unique and unsustainable separation of political and economic systems resulting from the 18th century democratic revolutions; the ruling-class drive to replace democratic government with a global plutocracy; and increased democratic participation as the only route to systemic change. A comprehensive primer on the capitalist system, written in layman’s language and non-polemical, this is a book for everyone, including students of economics and political science.
