Capitalism Institute is a defender of state-based capitalism. This is not a project based on delusional extremism, but is instead founded on a nuanced view of what seems to actually facilitate human prosperity in the real world.
Fundamentally, capitalism is a realistic framework for society, not based on any overly-mechanical, simplistic ideology. We are not free market radicals, libertarian radicals, Randian radicals, or any other kind of radical. We are realists.
Founded by Shaun Connell in 2011, Capitalism Institute is a non-partisan organization dedicated to teaching how capitalism is misunderstood, how it is the ultimate defender of the poor and oppressed, and how it provides the solution to most of our political problems.
Capitalism doesn’t need radicalism to be defended. It actually works. Every culture and nation-state should lean into capitalism to help their people prosper.
