What has capitalism brought us?

Capitalism does three things:


rapid growth


chronic instability


an unreasonable level of inequality

defense of capitalism

Of these three elements, only the first was positive. Defenders of capitalism deny the second.
The more dogmatic also deny the third (unreasonable inequalities) by means of 'trickle down theory', or a more elaborate version.

In the end, the current defense system of capitalism remains based on “communism is worse”, or a more watered down and false version of “it's the least bad system”.


To better understand the various attempts at moderation of capitalism throughout history, refer to the courses entitled Legal figures of economic democracy, donated by Alain Supiot to the Collège de France in 2016

A serious alternative to capitalism is presented in the second part of the book From capital to reason.
