ABSTRACT
The author presents his arguments on why he disagrees with Alasdair MacIntyre's views on capitalism, stating it to be false and unrelated to the Aristotelian moral philosophy. He explains MacIntyre's discussion on capitalism that focused on the financial crisis of 2007-2008, and says that it was based on the Marxist theory of surplus. Among MacIntyre's arguments that he cites to be a mistake include that capitalist keep wages low and endanger the system, his dismissal that capitalism is immoral and communities or systems are ordered to some purpose.
