Summary:
"The Left has seized on our economic troubles as an excuse to "blame the rich guy" and paint a picture of capitalism and the free market as selfish, greedy, and cruel. Democrats in Congress and "Occupy" protesters across the country assert that the free market is not only unforgiving, it's morally corrupt. According to President Obama and his allies, only by allowing the government to heavily control and regulate business and by redistributing the wealth can we ensure fairness and compassion. Exactly the opposite is true, says Father Robert A. Sirico in his thought-provoking new book, The Moral Case for a Free Economy. Father Sirico argues that a free economy actually promotes charity, selflessness, and kindness. And in The Moral Case for a Free Economy, he shows why free-market capitalism is not only the best way to ensure individual success and national prosperity but is also the surest route to a moral and socially-just society. In The Moral Case for a Free Economy, Father Sirico shows:Why we can't have freedom without a free economy and why the best way to help the poor is to a start a businessWhy charity works-but welfare doesn'tHow Father Sirico himself converted from being a leftist colleague of Jane Fonda and Tom Hayden to recognizing the merits of a free economyIn this heated presidential election year, the Left will argue that capitalism may produce winners, but it is cruel and unfair. But as Sirico proves in The Moral Case for a Free Economy, capitalism does not simply provide opportunity for material success, but it ensures a more ethical and moral society as well"--
