Our economic system does not always have it easy. Heavy attacks, swan songs and pessimism are not uncommon. You might even say: "Capitalism has a serious image problem." Many Germans reject it, yet is capitalism really one of history's biggest evils or are common prejudices due to a lack of knowledge about the topic? Ulrich Chiwitt introduces us to the benefits of capitalism, without ignoring the problems. Not just the materialistic opportunities, but also and mainly the idealistic, moral and social advantages, which are intended to show that despite all the prejudices it is the "little man" who profits from capitalism. Using 37 widespread theories and prejudices about capitalism, divided into 7 main topics, the author dispels the most common errors and allows readers to discuss our current economic system in future both soundly and objectively.
