"There is but one means available to improve the material conditions of mankind..."


"There is but one means available to improve the material conditions of mankind: to accelerate the growth of capital accumulated as against the growth in population. The greater the amount of capital invested per head of the worker, the more and the better goods can be produced and consumed. This is what capitalism, the much-abused profit system, has brought about and brings about daily anew. Yet, most present-day governments and political parties are eager to destroy this system."
          ~ Ludwig Von Mises, from The Anti-Capitalist Mentality

Thanks to a few abusers I am regularly moderate comments.
I welcome thoughtful disagreement. I will delete comments with insulting or abusive language, unless they're entertaining. I will also delete totally inane comments. Try to make some sense. I am much more likely to allow critical comments if you have the honesty and courage to use your real name.
