    Well, in the first quarter of the 19th century about three-quarters of all Americans worked for themselves, on the farm or in small shops. The difference between the wages we are paid and the value we create is how capital is accumulated, or profit is made. It is his subsistence wage.

    Four arguments for Capitalism It is the best economic system for bringing about economic growth, or a sustained increase in the total value of goods and services that are produced, It is the best system for ensuring that what is produced matches up to the needs and wants of the people — because producers only make a profit if they supply what people demand. Business must innovate, invent, and experiment if it is to survive; the business that rests content on its past achievements is not long for this enterprising world. Although these efforts dampened the repercussions of individual miscalculations, they were insufficient to guard against the effects of speculative panics or commercial convulsions. The worker is a free bargaining agent who enters the market to dispose of the one commodity he commands -- labor power.

    There is a spectrum of views and values on the prerogatives of capital, the centrality of the market, and the respective roles of the private and the public sectors in all nations whose institutions are capitalist. The population that controls the means of production tends to accumulate more wealth than the workers who helped to create those riches for the wealthy. But they are all in competition. Beginning in the 18th century in Englandthe focus of capitalist development shifted from commerce to industry. For Adam Smith, the capitalist escalator climbed upward, at least as far as the eye could reasonably see. There is an easy way of disposing of the whole thing.
