      Keynes is one of the most important and influential economists who ever lived. It is almost universally believed that Keynes wrote his magnum opus, The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, to save capitalism from the socialist, communist, and fascist forces that were rising up during the Great Depression era. This book argues that this was not the case with respect to socialism. Both socialism and capitalism are good in their own ways. The socialist government satisfies human needs, and the capitalist government lets you earn the money. A socialist economy has high tax rates (%) to support a large government which in exchange provides necessities. A capitalist economy is based on private ownership of capital.

Interestingly one of the few books to cover this period.

What often unites these two seemingly disparate views is the belief that apartheid is somehow the result of profit-seeking under free-market capitalism.

Starting from this belief, one must either rationalize the existence of a government-imposed system of legalized racial discrimination or embrace some form of socialism.

In contrast to capitalism, the main concern of socialism is the elimination of “rich” and “poor” socio-economic classes by ensuring an equal distribution of wealth among the people.

To accomplish this, the socialist government controls the labor market, sometimes to the extent of being the primary employer.Most of these potentially objectionable features of capitalism center around equality and its place in the modern political lexicon.
