This book is a concise explanation of capitalism's moral and economic superiority to socialism, including America's current mixed-economy welfare state. This volume offers a focused, essentialized, and condensed argument ideal for the layman who admires capitalism but lacking a succinct, accessible explanation of its moral and economic virtues.
Incontestable moral case for individual rights.
Capitalism Unbound is a triumph. Passionately written and painstakingly researched, Bernstein's primer on capitalism is actually an urgent call-to-arms for individual rights. This is a must-read book for those who love liberty and are concerned about the country's present course. — Jonathan Hoenig, portfolio manager, Capitalistpig Hedge Fund LLC and Fox News contributor In Capitalism Unbound, Andrew Bernstein has presented the too-often neglected but essential moral case for capitalism alongside the historical and economic one. The great virtue of this work is the taut and well-written prose that makes it both easily digestible and full of important ideas. In these times when capitalism is unfairly blamed for every social ill, Bernstein's work should be read by everyone as the antidote. His rousing call to unleash the human mind and celebrate productivity is both rare and to be cherished. — Dr. Eric Daniels, research assistant professor, The Clemson Institute for the Study of Capitalism
