In Defense of Global Capitalism

Extrait du livre « In Defense of Global Capitalism » de Johan Norberg:

"Basically, what I believe in is neither capitalism nor globalization. I believe in man’s capacity for achieving great things and in the combined force resulting from encounters and exchanges.

I plead for greater liberty and a more open world because it provides a setting which liberates individuals and their creativity as no other system can. It spurs the dynamism which has led to human, economic, scientific, and technical advances, and which will continue to do so.

Believing in capitalism does not mean believing in growth, the economy, or efficiency. Desirable as these may be, these are only the results. Belief in capitalism is, fundamentally, belief in mankind."
