The Virtues of Capitalism

£10.99

Product description

Book is brand new and sealed.
Part 1: The Collected Works Of Arthur Seldon

Arthur Seldon was born in 1916 and has been writing on classical liberal economics since the 1930s, when he was a student at the London School of Economics during Friedrich Hayeks time there. For over thirty years he was Editorial Director of the London-based Institute of Economic Affairs, where his publishing program was one of the principal influences on governments all around the world, persuading them to liberalise their economies. "The Virtues of Capitalism", the inaugural volume in Liberty Funds Collected Works of Arthur Seldon, presents the foundation of Seldons views and theories of capitalism and its alternatives. Entitled "Corrigible Capitalism; Incorrigible Socialism", part one of "The Virtues of Capitalism" was first published in 1980. It explains why, Seldon believes, 'private enterprise is imperfect but redeemable', but the state economy promises the earth, and ends in coercion to conceal its incurable failure. The second part, 'Capitalism', is widely considered to be Seldons finest work. It covers a wide range of the classical liberal thought that inspired the movement toward free-market reforms in Great Britain in opposition to the collectivist tide of socialism. In an understandable and eloquent manner, Seldon offers 'Capitalism' as a celebration rather than a defence of classical liberalism.

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
