Capitalism is the system of the future—if man is to have a future.
Ayn Rand wrote in her introduction to Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal
No politico-economic system in history has ever proved its value so eloquently or has benefited mankind so greatly as capitalism—and none has ever been attacked so savagely, viciously, and blindly. The flood of misinformation, misrepresentation, distortion, and outright falsehood about capitalism is such that the young people of today have no idea . . . of its actual nature.
The purpose of this section of ARI’s Web site is to illuminate capitalism’s actual nature, including its philosophical foundation and moral justification, and to provide commentary on current events from a pro-capitalist perspective.
The following selection of quotes from Ayn Rand’s work captures in brief form the philosophical basis and actual meaning of capitalism.
