Critics of capitalism argue that it promotes inequality, greed, and exploitation and harms the environment. Not so, argues Yaron Brook. Capitalism promotes virtue and human flourishing. Free markets ensure that relationships are consensual, and they respect the autonomy and dignity of the individual, while achieving far better outcomes for everyone – whether rich or poor – than any other economic system. Capitalism will also provide the best solutions to Climate change and other environmental problems.
