Capitalism How would you define “capitalism”? What other words come to mind when you think of the word “capitalism”? Are these associations positive or negative?
Capitalism Capitalism – an economic system based on private ownership and on the investment of money in business ventures in order to make a profit .
Adam Smith A Scottish political economist and moral philosopher (1723-1790). His Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1776) founded the modern discipline of economics and provided the rationale for free trade, capitalism and libertarianism.
Physiocracy Smith criticized physiocracy, which taught that wealth originated in land. Smith argued that labor was the major source of wealth and that the division of labor was the key to economic growth. As productivity rises, wages will rise.
Capitalism Ideas: Businesses compete with each other for the consumer’s money. Each business tries to provide goods and services that are better and less expensive than their competition.
Capitalism Government should not interfere in the economy. Laissez faire
The Invisible Hand The free market appears chaotic and unrestrained. Actually, it is guided by “an invisible hand” to produce the right amount and variety of goods. If a product shortage occurs, the price rises, establishing a profit margin that provides an incentive for others to enter production.

Understanding CAPITALISM You are in charge of your life and the means to work to support yourself. You can choose to run your own business Capitalism can lead to materialism- the belief that material goods and money are the most important things on the planet. You get the highest quality of products for the cheapest prices.
Understanding CAPITALISM If you are poor or sick, there is no “safety net”, meaning you must rely on friends or your family to support you (with money and otherwise). You can become extremely rich if you work hard, know the right people, and/or are born into the right family.
Understanding CAPITALISM You vote with your dollars. If you dont like at Store A, you can always shop at Store B. If no one shops at Store A it will shut down. You have the right to own property, which comes with the right to do what you wish on it (build a house, a business, etc.). There is no minimum wage in a true capitalism, which means business owners can pay you as little as they like.

Atheism Marx was an atheist. He believed that religion was “the opiate of the people.” The owners of capital used religion to keep the peasants and workers subjugated by leading them to think, not of their present misery, of future happiness in heaven.
Understanding COMMUNISM Everyone is treated equally by the government. Personal rights and freedoms are reduced, as the government tells people what they can and cannot do. Everyone has a job and is paid about the same amount of money.
Understanding COMMUNISM Laws are oftentimes much more strict, as the government wants to make sure people act in a certain way. There is healthcare for everyone, as the government provides it. Everything belongs to the government- especially businesses.
COMMUNISM When you go to any store, there are fewer choices and things are a bit more expensive than they could be. There are many fewer choices when you buy things, as the government wants everyone to be equal and have the same/similar things.
Criticism of Communism In the 20th century, it is estimated that 50 million people were killed in the name of communism. Most of Marx’s predictions were wrong, such as that communist revolutions would occur only in industrial societies. It is inconsistent with human nature. It ignores the appeal of religion.
Capitalism United States is Capitalist Work for profit and wealth Competition between people and businesses Private ownership by people and businesses “Free Market” trade, buy, sell without restrictions from government. Capitalism helps society and people by making large profits and trickling down money
Communism seeks to establish a classless society (no rich/poor) Ideology created by German Karl Marx 1800s- Wants a Utopia (Perfect society) common ownership of land, farms, factories (no private property) Government regulates society to be “equal” Sees profit as “theft” from working class Stalin’s Communism was not for the people, but for power (Not Marx’s vision)
