Description:

Everything you ever wanted-and needed-to know about capitalism . . . but were afraid to ask.What is capitalism, and will it survive? What does globalization really mean-and how does it affect your bank account? If capitalism, left unchecked, has caused disasters like the Great Depression and the financial crisis of 2008-09, why has it been the economic system of choice for centuries? To many people, the complex, jargon-rich world of capitalism can be intimidating, raising more questions than it answers. However, as the excesses and failures of free-market capitalism continue to hold sway over the daily news and our daily lives, understanding our economic system-including where it has succeeded and where it has not-is more important than ever.Edited by New York Times business journalist Gretchen Morgenson, The Capitalist's Bible is the essential reference on capitalism and how it works-from the people who champion it to the mechanisms and institutions that uphold it to the terms and laws that define it. Whether you seek a more well-rounded understanding of the ideology that underwrites America's-and, increasingly, the world's-economy, or simply wish to be able to speak more knowledgeably on the subject in conversation, this book is an invaluable tool for understanding capitalism.
