The Capitalist Manifesto

Excerpt

While signing my name to THE CAPITALIST MANIFESTO as coauthor with Louis Kelso, I wish to disclaim any credit for the original and basic theory of capitalism on which this Manifesto is based. That theory is entirely Mr. Kelso's. It is the product of many years of inquiry and thought on his part. The full statement of it will soon be published in Capitalism, of which Mr.Kelso is sole author.

I would also like to explain how I came to appreciate the critical importance of the theory of capitalism; and why I felt that its revolutionary insights and program should be briefly summarized in the form of a manifesto addressed to all Americans who are concerned with the future of a democratic society, with the achievement of the fullest freedom and justice for all men, and, above all, with a twentieth- century reinterpretation of everyone's right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
