Editor N. Merino examines whether capitalism is a good, practical, moral, and sustainable economic system. Readers will explore concerns about the relationships between capitalism and democracy, poverty, and personal freedom, and looks at the role of capitalism in the global economic crisis. This book also provides perspectives on the question of whether and when the public good warrants intervention by the government in a capitalist system.
