Capitalism is like nuclear power…
When nuclear power is properly contained, nothing can match its ability to create vast amounts of energy.
When capitalism is properly contained, nothing can match its ability to create vast amounts of wealth.
When not properly contained, nuclear power can spew toxic waste all over the landscape.
When not properly contained, capitalism can spew negative externalities all over society.
What is the proper containment vessel for capitalism? It can only be a strong and consistent ideology.
An ideology cannot be strong if it does not have emotional appeal. Therefore an appreciation of the “two faces of capitalism” leads to a defense of charisma and vision in politics.
My goal in writing the Money Revolution is to develop this ideology.
