Quotes to Ponder: Capitalism

by Stephen Littau

Capitalism and communism stand at opposite poles. Their essential difference is this: The communist, seeing the rich man and his fine home, says: “No man should have so much.” The capitalist, seeing the same thing, says: “All men should have as much.” -Phelps Adams

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. -Winston Churchill

  1. I’ve heard the Churchill quote a few times before, and I loved it.

    But the Adams quote is new to me. I like that quote a lot.
