Capitalism is often recognised as a realisation of the
bourgeois revolution-war to the castles and peace to the
huts. This book argues that a lack in perception of the
progressive aspects of capitalism has resulted in policy
measures that have frequently been defeated. It brings
out the importance of capitalism as the promise of being
able to attain socialism. Based on modern economics of a
post-Keynesian nature, it rejects mechanistic Marxism and
the civilisational process of cultural turn thinking.
