Nathaniel Branden: Why Capitalism works

“Der große Verdienst des Kapitalismus liegt darin, dass er die Erfordernisse des menschlichen Überlebens und die Notwendigkeit von Wachstum erfüllt. Dadurch, dass er dem Menschen die Freiheit lässt, zu denken, zu handeln, zu produzieren und das Neue und Unversuchte zu versuchen, funktionieren seine Prinzipien in einer Weise, die Einsatz belohnt und Passivität bestraft.”

– Nathaniel Branden, Die Tugend des Egoismus

“The great merit of capitalism is its unique appropriateness to the requirements of human survival and to man’s need to grow. Leaving men free to think, to act, to produce, to attempt the untried and the new, its principles operate in a way that rewards effort and achievement, and penalizes passivity.”

– Nathaniel Branden, The Virtue of Selfishness
