The Calamity of Anti-Capitalism: A Brief American History | Thomas E. Woods, Jr.

Lecture presented by Thomas E. Woods, Jr. at the Ludwig von Mises Institute's "Capitalism the Creator: The Mises Circle in Seattle" seminar. Sponsored by Curt and Allora Doolittle. Recorded May 17, 2008. http://mises.org The Mises Circle goes to Seattle to address contemporary issues in liberty, and the role of capitalism as the main force for every form of progress in our age. We live amidst its fruits–technology, culture, philanthropy, human well being–and have yet to appreciate the source. Indeed, among the most passionate opponents of the free market are those who have benefitted most enormously from it. Here we have a profound failure of understanding at work.
