Capitalism is Moral

Capitalism is getting a bad reputation in our universities and in the popular media. But is capitalism really immoral or is this just a biased view being pushed by those with a socialist or Marxist worldview? The reality is that capitalism is moral because there is a free exchange of services between individuals. The real impediment in the economic system is when government gets involved in the process in a effort often times to do a good thing - like meeting the needs of the poor. However, that is not the role of the government. When it does get involved in the process it often chooses winners or losers dependent upon who controls it more effectively. The following video by Walter Martin discusses the issue in more depth.
