ABSTRACT
This article ponders on the capitalism issue addressed in George Gilder's book "Wealth and Poverty." It praises Gilder for his thinking on what capitalism is all about. It opposes Gilder's pseudo-anthropological analysis of economic activity as inherently and ineluctably giving birth to a viable morality. It argues that market economy can provide economic growth and individual liberty but it cannot prevent the abuse of affluence or liberty.
