Capitalism Quotes


Fran Lebowitz pulled no punches in her capitalism quotes when she remarked, “In the Soviet Union, capitalism triumphed over communism. In this country, capitalism triumphed over democracy.” Ouch! But given the state of the economy these days, she may not be far off. You either love capitalism or hate it, but given the alternative, well, at least capitalism quotes can give us pause to appreciate it, ponder it, laugh at it or at least, find some comfort in it, even if it’s discomfort. Making a buck is the American way it seems, and nothing will ever change that, thankfully! Reference.com Definition of Capitalism

"The essence of understanding capitalism is to recognize that the interest is not in the survival of particular capitalists, but of the system of capitalism. The most sclerotic economies are those where there never are any shakeouts; there never is any competitive pressure where failure is not a possibility. While shakeouts are painful, they set the stage for redeployment of resources for more productive uses in the future." Lawrence Summers

"[Hickel:] Karl Marx's key error is the idea that capitalism develops according to laws, that these laws are described by the tendency of the profit rate to drop, and that in the long run the system must collapse. This hypothesis has proven to be wrong, because capitalism has repeatedly found new ways of dealing with its crises. Through this inevitability of capitalism, Marx underestimates the need for political shaping. ... Marx fundamentally underestimated the nature of liberal democracy, he didn't comprehend liberal democracy. Concepts such as tolerance, civil rights and liberties, parlamentarianism - all these categories went totally unrecognised by Marx, and that had fatal consequences." Paul Nolte
