Capitalism is widely recognized by economists as the most practical social system because, wherever and to the extent that it is implemented, it leads to wealth and prosperity. But this same system is regarded by almost everyone as morally suspect—if not simply immoral—because it leaves people free to act fully selfishly—that is, to act fully in accordance with their own judgment and to keep, use, and dispose of their own property as they see fit. In this presentation, Craig Biddle, editor of The Objective Standard, shows why the fact that capitalism enables everyone to act selfishly is what makes it not only the most practical but also the only moral social system.
