  Capitalism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The commodities produced by the workers become the property of the capitalist ("capitalist" in this context refers to a person who has capital, rather than a person who favors capitalism), and are sold by the workers on behalf of the capitalist or by the capitalist himself.
The ability of capitalist economies to sustainably increase and improve their stock of capital was central to the argument which Adam Smith advanced for a free market setting production, price and resource allocation.
Capitalist systems have often functioned under unelected governments: the classic case is the United Kingdom, where less than 20% of adult males could vote prior to 1885, and women did not receive the vote until 1918.

 The Postmodernism Generator: Communications From Elsewhere   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
If one examines capitalist theory, one is faced with a choice: either reject cultural socialism or conclude that truth is part of the fatal flaw of art.
Capitalist theory implies that academe is capable of intentionality, but only if the premise of textual theory is invalid; if that is not the case, the raison d'etre of the participant is social comment.
Capitalist theory states that discourse comes from communication, but only if Bataille's essay on textual theory is valid; otherwise, Baudrillard's model of capitalist construction is one of "cultural postcapitalist theory", and thus used in the service of capitalism.

 The Capitalist Use of Machinery: Marx Versus the Objectivists' Raniero Panzieri   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The capitalist's plan is the ideal shape in which "the interconnection between their various labours" confronts the wage-labourers, while it presents itself "in practice, as his authority, as the powerful will of a being outside them."13 Hence, the development of capitalist planning is something closely related to that of the capitalist use of machines.
Capitalist 'planning' presupposes the planning of living labour, and the more it strives to present itself as a closed and perfectly rational system of rules, the more it is abstract and partial, ready to be utilized solely in a hierarchical type of organization.
While the processes intrinsic to capitalist accumulation become ever more globally determinant both 'internally' and 'externally' (at the level of the firm and at the level of society in general), the various positions which are springing up anew from the Keynesian matrix (even within the working-class movement) represent genuine ideologies, a reflection of late-capitalist developments.

 Michael Kidron: Two insights don't make a theory (1977)
In private capitalism labour policy was simple: as a capitalist you paid as little as you needed to and got as much as you could from as many workers as you could afford to employ given the size of your total capital and its distribution amongst wage and other costs.
For most of the private capitalist period it was divided into protected spheres in each of which a group of metropolitan capitalists monopolized the forced, unequal exchange of functionally different products between themselves and their country’s colonies.
If in the private capitalist system workers safeguarded a modicum of independence and strength in their relations with each capital by forming unions that spanned several capitals, in state capitalism the task is very much harder since the only equivalents are international organisations which must inevitably be political.

 An Introductory Explanation of Capitalist Economic Crises
In addition to the artificial means the capitalists and their governments have to keep the economy going, there is one more or less "automatic" factor that helps them to some degree: scientific discovery and new technology, which from time to time leads to whole new industries.
Capitalists convince themselves during booms that there is virtually no end to new investment opportunities, and so plunge into new investments with ever greater fervor.
This brings to mind the old capitalist slogan, "One man’s disaster is another man’s opportunity." And it really is true that while disasters are of course not good at all for the people directly affected, they are generally good for capitalism as an economic system.

More broadly, it is to the capitalist nations across the globe that immigrants come, millions of them, both historically and currently, often fleeing political and/or religious persecution in their homelands.
Finally, the Western capitalist nations, by inflicting military defeat on the Fascists, and political-economic defeat on the Communists, eliminated the scourge of totalitarianism from large parts of the earth, bringing greater freedom to hundreds of millions of human beings in Japan, Germany, Italy, Eastern Europe and Russia.
The striking truth is that the capitalist nations are the wealthiest countries of history.

 Ten Capitalist Myths
Capitalist competition means more, cheaper, faster; cheaper goods, cheaper shelter, and cheaper protein, but it's not always better.
That the Europeans have been successful capitalists doesn't mean they invented capitalism, and it doesn't automatically consign capitalism to European values and prerogatives.
To recap the first five capitalist myths, they are the following: Free trade is always best, value is easily monetized, capitalism is an outgrowth of European culture, intellectual property needs lots of protection, and the whole world should industrialize.

 Karl Kautsky: Capitalist Class (Chap.5)
The prompt fulfilment by each individual capitalist of the duties that arise from his economic functions is a requisite condition for the fulfilment of their corresponding duties by all the others.
In capitalist republics, there is still a fifth source through which the capitalist class is plundered of a goodly portion of its surplus by its own State.
Thus, in all these several ways the State, or the Government, reduces the profits or surplus of the capitalist; as the capitalist system develops, the causes that lead to that result are intensified; despite all capitalist manoeuvres to stem them, the inroads increase upon the surplus which labor produces and which capital grabs.

 Karl Kautsky: Capitalist Class (Chap.3)
When the capitalist buys the labor-power of a proletarian, and thereby turns the latter into a wage worker, he does so only because the wage-worker will produce more than he is paid for.
The proletarian, the wage worker, employed by the capitalist, is the wealth producer.
Unfortunately, however, “life’s unalloyed enjoyment is not the lot of mortal man.” However hateful the operation may be to him, the capitalist is compelled to “divide.” The landlord and the State or Government both come in for their shares; and the capitalist class is compelled to divide with them the surplus that it scoops in.

 Toward an Anti-Capitalist Globe   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Many North Americans and Europeans were awakened to capitalist globalization -- which was then called "neoliberalism" -- when the Zapatistas chose January 1, 1994, to punctuate indigenous Mexicans' opposition to NAFTA and to assert their own humanity.
Capitalist globalization is seen by many nitty-gritty activists as abstract, far removed from the day-to-day struggles taking place in communities and workplaces throughout the country.
But we should recognize that struggling against the capitalists and politicians on the home front, in all the ways we always have (while bringing to that battle lessons learned from the anti-capitalist globalization movement), does indeed contribute to the fight against capitalist globalization.

 An Introductory Explanation of Capitalist Economic Crises
But capitalist production is so powerful, and constantly grows more powerful, which means that the capitalists and their families also have no personal use for most of what can be and is produced.
The capitalists want wealth not only for the purchase of more luxuries, but also, and much more importantly, for the prestige and power that such wealth brings in their circles.
For most capitalists, accumulation itself becomes the main goal in life, and the principal way of increasing the rate of accumulation is through the continual expansion of production.

 Workers World Oct. 17, 1996: What comes after capitalist stability?
The present period is one of normal capitalist development within the framework of imperialism.
In 1928, when capitalist prosperity was at its height, the working-class parties in all the capitalist countries seemed to be making normal progress with the workers.
But it is not a generalized capitalist prosperity that takes in the whole population.

 The Capitalist System
It [capitalist monopoly] can attain this two-fold result only by forcing out an ever-growing number of small or medium-sized capitalists, speculators, merchants, or industrialists, from the world of exploiters into the world of the exploited proletariat, and at the same time squeezing out ever greater savings from the wages of the same proletariat.
Thus, while being equal from the point of juridical fiction, the capitalist and the worker are anything but equal from the point of view of the economic situation, which is the real situation.
The capitalist is not threatened with hunger when he comes to the market; he knows very well that if he does not find today the workers for whom he is looking, he will still have enough to eat for quite a long time, owing to the capital of which he is the happy possessor.

The havoc caused by the capitalist crisis has become so severe that the capitalist newspapers in some regions are competing with each other to give vivid pictures of the devastation suffered by millions of families throughout the country.
In fact, capitalist society has middle layers in it that serve a reactionary purpose--police, prison guards, military officers and pen-pushers, hundreds of thousands of others who work in the capitalist state apparatus and are a parasitic element--not to speak of the actual big-time bureaucrats.
The capitalist press dins into the ears of the workers day in and day out, whenever the workers complain about jobs being shifted abroad, that we are living in an integrated world economy.

 Anti-globalization - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The anti-globalization movement developed in the late twentieth century to combat the globalization of corporate economic activity and the free trade with developing nations that might result from such activity.
Members of the anti-globalization movement generally advocate socialist or social democratic alternatives to capitalist economics, and seek to protect the world's population and ecosystem from what they believe to be the damaging effects of globalization.
Doug Henwood, author of After the New Economy, faults the methodology of such studies, arguing that the selection of indices is arbitrary, the conclusions drawn are dubious (often neglecting the elementary fact that "correlation does not prove causation"), and concluding that the report is "meaningless." [17].

 Marx's Radical Critique of Capitalist Society
Furthermore, he clearly believed that the problems with capitalist society are deeply rooted in the sense that only a radical transformation of capitalism (i.e., its replacement by socialism) could eliminate or significantly reduce these problems.
The former requires the radical critic to identify certain social ills or defects characteristic of capitalist society (e.g., exploitation and alienation) and to explain how and why these ills or defects are rooted in the basic socioeconomic structure of that society.
The upshot of this discussion is that market socialism constitutes a meliorist response to the evils of capitalist society and thus represents the abandonment of radical criticism.

 A Capitalist War? by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
Millions of college students are taught the Leninist idea that capitalist economies are inherently imperialistic.
This is supposedly because exploitation exhausts capital values in the domestic economy, and hence capital owners must relentlessly seek to replenish their funds through grabbing foreign resources.
Recall that it was then-secretary of state James Baker who said the first Iraq war was all about "jobs, jobs, jobs." The line between the owners of capital and the warfare state has never been that clean in American history, and it has arguably never been as conspicuously blurred as it is today.

 Anarchist Theory FAQ Version 5.2
Anarcho- capitalists are thinking of how competing firms would prevent the rise of abusive protection monopolists in a society where most people don't support the existence of such a monopolist.
Hence, capitalists would be unable to pay their workers wages competitive with the wages of the labor-managed firm, and by force of competition would gradually vanish.
Anarcho- capitalists also often note that while the United States has never been an anarchist society by any stretch of the imagination, that before the 20th-century the United States came closer to their pure laissez-faire ideals than any other society in history.

One of the many threads that hold together Gabor's profiles is the issue of "two seemingly irreconcilable visions of management--the scientific and humanistic." She writes that humanists see the corporation "as a pivotal institution of democracy with complex responsibilities to a host of constituencies, including its employees, its customers, and the community.
It goes in depth in to how profound capitalist made their mark, and also their faults.
