The case for and against capitalism. The arguments in its favor are marshalled -- and subsequently demolished in a close analysis of the disinteration of the capitalistic system, and of its insidious tentacles in every phase of modern ""civilized"" life. The best popular book of the kind I have come across. The veriest babe on the subject would find it clear, succinct, penetrating. And no avowed capitalistic sympathizer could fail to read challenge. If you must have but one book on the subject, this is an excellent choice.
