Capitalism 101 explains how capitalism and liberty has helped to build a far better life for the population of the United States of America than any other system ever succeeded in any country throughout the history of humankind.
Capitalism 101 helps answer such questions as
- What works better- capitalism or socialism, and why
- Does distribution of wealth help the poor and the underprivileged
- What Lenin, Mussolini, Hitler and FDR had in common
- Does the anti-monopoly law help or hurt the competition
- What did the immigrants who worked at the XX Century sweat shops in America write to their relatives back home
- Was child labor good or bad for the children
- Is competition good or bad for the general population
- Are profits that capitalists receive good or bad for the workers
- What impact unions had on workers wages - positive or negative
- Is it possible that one man is right and the whole world is wrong
- Is stealing always bad, or is it sometimes good
- Do people like to be slaves or not
The "conservative" part of the population says that capitalism made America strong, independent, the best place in the world and the fairest society on the planet. The "liberal" part says that capitalism produced terrible working conditions, child labor, absence of medical care for the poor and injustice unheard of on the planet. Wow! What a huge difference of opinions on the same subject.
"Capitalism 101" is the only book on the market that introduces this subject in an easy to understand and fun way, with lots of stories and examples, with riddles for the readers to solve and with the explanations of different views.
The book will help folks who are not schooled in politico-economic theories to better understand basic premises, faults and benefits of the society they live in. They will have fun while reading the book and using stories and examples taken from the book. They will be able to articulate this new knowledge and understanding to their friends, co-workers and even children.
There are two ways to impact humans - one is through logic and another through emotion. We would love to say that we as "homo sapiens" think before acting, but in fact most of our actions and decisions are based on our emotional considerations. This is why this book is based from one side on a logical scientific approach, with postulates and theorems as a base and the scientific method as a building manual, and at the same time provides an emotional support (stories, riddles, historical facts) for the book's logic.
