Advocates of Freed Markets Should Oppose Capitalism

C4SS Media would like to present one of our signature political position pieces, from C4SS Senior Fellow Gary Chartier:

“Defenders of freed markets have good reason to identify their position as a species of ‘anti-capitalism.’ To explain why, I distinguish three potential meanings of ‘capitalism’ before suggesting that people committed to freed markets should oppose capitalism in my second and third senses. Then, I offer some reasons for using ‘capitalism’ as a label for some of the social arrangements to which freed-market advocates should object.” —Gary Chartier
