    The system is efficient, but it might not be so moral. It is not capitalism my friend, capitalism works better than any system, it is the governments intervention income tax not money standard that destroyed America. Or value-neutral? It is this mechanism that allows us to realize the morally virtuous outcomes of prosperity, reduced poverty and discrimination.

Although such wide coverage at times gives the book the feel of a survey text, Searle brings focus to his narrative by identifying, in each case, the precise limits to which radical "marketeers" were willing to go to defend their faith. But anyone who considers Madoff a representative money manager is mistaken. The private sector has shrunk. It does not conform to our moral intuition that a CEO should not be paid times the average wage of his workers, or to our belief that if someone's market-clearing wage is too low to support life, he should not be allowed to starve to death.

Technology has had a very democratizing impact on markets. The monster Roosevelt took us off of the gold standard.
