Doing Virtuous Business: The Remarkable Success Of Spiritual Enterprise
By: Theodore Roosevelt Malloch
In this quite interesting and short book Theodore Roosevelt Malloch presents and defends the economic system know as capitalism with rational arguments and real life examples in a way that does not make economics seem boring (of course I usually find it thrilling anyways so maybe you can’t take my word for that one). This he does from a Christian perspective. This is not simply a book that states “Capitalism has been proven to work where as socialism and communism always fail so we should all be Capitalists.” Though that is true and the author makes that point he uses as his primary argument that capitalism is the most Biblical of the various economic philosophies available. It is a very fascinating a worth while read no doubt. One minor draw back does present itself, however, that I would like to point out. This book is not written in the format of a regular cover to cover book for a laymen. Though any layman can read and benefit from it. It is primarily (or at least it seems to be primarily) a book for business men about how they should conduct their businesses. This in no way takes away from the book though. I definitely recommend this book.
