SELFLESS CAPITALISM

People are less selfish under capitalism. Why individualism and free exchange make people more altruistic and trustworthy.
by Barry Brownstein
Years ago, an MBA student of mine had immigrated from Albania after growing up under Communism. She shared with her classmates what she observed to be the most unexpected mindset difference between Americans and Albanians.

She got emotional as she explained how in Albania, charity was rare—caring for anyone other than yourself and your family was uncommon. In contrast, she experienced Americans as generous and caring.

My student described how exasperated she felt hearing the claim that capitalism leads to a survival of the fittest mentality. In her experience, it was the opposite; under communism, the mindset was to not care for others.

Today, she has more reasons to be exasperated. Among broad segments of society, the belief that capitalism teaches us to be so self-interested that we become uncaring about the welfare of others seems to be accepted as truth. As FEE editor Dan Sanchez observes, “Some go so far as to demand the abolition of capitalism in favor of socialism in order to fully restore benevolence and the intentional promotion of the public interest in the hearts of humankind.”

WINNING FOR WOMEN

At a time when government is viewed as out of touch, women bring alternative priorities to public life that resonate with the everyday concerns of Americans. Women work out compromises. Women are ethical. Women will fight to improve Americans’ quality of life. Women just may be our best tool to reverse growing trends of voter fatigue and frustration with government.

Yet, in today’s Congress, and indeed across most sectors of leadership, women are severely underrepresented.

Winning For Women is a 501(c)(4) supporting women leaders who believe in free-market principles and a strong national defense. Winning For Women aims to: Inform the public of national security and free-market policy that will benefit the lives of all Americans, organize and amplify the voices of women across the country who embrace such, broadening the audience for a strong conservative message, and expand the ability of right-of-center women to succeed in their pursuit of leadership opportunities, including elected office.

Winning For Women’s connected federal PAC will support free-market conservative women running for federal office. Visit the Winning for Women site to see our wonderful woman candidates for 2018.
