Heroes of Capitalism
An accurate history of capitalism tells the story of towering heroes who lifted British and American societies (and, eventually, large portions of the world) out of abysmal poverty and into modern industrial civilization. That history is almost never told.
This talk, based on Andrew Bernstein's books, The Capitalist Manifesto and Capitalism Unbound, tells that history. In doing so truthfully and accurately, it dispels Marxist mythology, sets straight the historical record, and pays proper homage to the great 18th and 19th century heroes who are among mankind's most noble benefactors.
