The Morality of Capitalism

Father Sirico of the Acton Institute talks about Paul Ryan, Ayn Rand, Jane Fonda and Obamacare.

Rev. Robert A. Sirico is president of the Acton Institute, a Michigan-based think tank that works to integrate “Judeo-Christian Truths with Free Market Principles.” In his new book “Defending the Free Market: The Moral Case for a Free Economy,” Sirico argues that capitalism is not only compatible with Christianity, but that even the most derided aspects of the free market ‚?? consumerism, international trade and ‚??unfairness‚?Ě ‚?? help create the most moral economic system available.

Sirico talks about Paul Ryan, Ayn Rand, Jane Fonda, Obamacare and the — sometimes unseen — morality of free markets. (And if I had known when we spoke that¬†this was his brother, I would have been compelled to talk about it, as well.)
