How Capitalism Will Save Us

It is unfortunate that capitalism has been denigrated by uninformed people for many years, and the criticism rears its ugly head during economic crises. We keep hearing from people from other countries that move to the United States that this country is the best country in the world, and the primary reason is capitalism: allowing people to live the American Dream.

It is refreshing to read, after seeing so many doom and gloom books blaming the failure of capitalism, a new book about how capitalism is the solution and not the problem.

I was very happy to read Steve Forbes' recently released book, How Capitalism Will Save Us: Why Free People and Free Markets Are the Best Answer in Today's Economy, which very clearly shows us that capitalism is here to stay and will get us out of this mess.

Capitalism works well when governments stay out of the way. Steve Forbes explains very clearly that the solution to our economic problems is to let the free enterprise system run.

A great read that also makes a great gift, How Capitalism Will Save Us by Steve Forbes and Elizabeth Ames is the book worth getting.
