Capitalism in America A history by Alan Greenspan is an interesting overview of the history of Capitalism in America and generally an examination of economic trends in America from conception to modern times Greenspan is the former chair of the Federal Reserve in the United States and as chair a rampant supporter of the high growth lasseiz faire capitalism that was common in the States in the 1980 s and 1990 s The book has its particular biases which I will talk about later The book generally examines US economic history for the past few centuries From an Agrarian economy at its inception to one that promoted chattel slavery onto industrialization in the 19th century In the 20th century the US economy began to take the shape it has today first a modernizing economy dominated by industries but slowly evolved into the global power we see today with control over global trade finance and with a very powerful domestic industry focused on services and consumerism The book closely examines the great men who made this possible your Ford s Rockefeller s etc etc Greenspan is very much enthused with these Capitalist giants and although he does mention some of the negative externalizes they unleashed on the economy he mostly focuses on the positive no criticism necessarily The development of modern management structures production techniues industrial organization and so forth mostly originated or were innovated in the United States Greenspan is also positive on the development of middle management culture and the promotion of shareholder value as a key pillar of the financial system of the US Greenspan does examine modern issues such as the growth of stagflation inefficient labour ie powerful unions and workforces and the bubbles of the 1990 s and early 2000 s which was an era of growth focus over economic stability Greenspan s solutions to the 2008 recession are vague not a bad thing necessarily He seems to take a Chicago school outlook criticizing banks for their lack of reserves on their balance sheets He does talk about the positive and negative aspects of creative destruction how capitalism has historically disrupted previous generations in favour of new techniues production efficiencies and ideas This is one of the key playoffs of the book Greenspan admits that the negative aspects of creative destruction can be damaging but ultimately concludes they are worth it and those protesting against changes are like modern Luddites Greenspan is a capitalist of the 1990 s big on finance positive toward shareholder value but thoughtful on slow conservative reform of the economic system The downsides of rampant capitalism are clear but Greenspan looks at the positives throughout history and ultimately concludes the cost benefit analysis is in favour AS my rating attests this book is positive but a mixed bag in my opinion I certainly do not fully agree with his prognosis on Capitalism and Greenspan s fawning endorsement Destroying people now to encourage creative destruction which largely benefits the already wealthy in order to reform the system in their favour is not a positive thing in my opinion Wealth should be distributed evenly across societies The rabid and unfaltering adherence to pure individualism in society in modern times is wrong communities must and should share resources promote each others well being and ensure wealth labour and leisure are efficiently divided among all individuals Greenspan would not agree some great men it seems are worthy of wealth than others even if they trend toward megalomaniac behaviour Greenspan is not populist but thoroughly capitalist Their is no room for a democratic system that promotes the interests of consumers workers and the poor Instead the market will efficiently allocate resources if the G in government remains small Whatever I think about these ideas they are certainly ideas If you are interested in Capitalism or economics at all this is a good if basic
