Book details
Excerpt from
the Preface
Belloc's Essay on the Restoration of Property is a unique and engaging look at the economic landscape of the civilized West before the "triumph" of capitalism, and a sketch of how that landscape can be restored. Belloc argues, convincingly and persuasively, that the concentration of productive wealth in relatively few hands is a historical abberation, and that it did not arise out of necessity, but as a result of poor decisions made by free men. Reverse those decisions, and you reverse and improve the economic situation of masses of people.

Excerpt from
the Preface
The Free Press is a thorough, precise, and direct look at the origins, growth, and behavior of the media, which in Belloc's day was simply the Press. As in almost every case, Belloc proves his genius insofar as his assessment of the media applies exacetly to the situation of today, and yet it was wrotten almost 85 years ago! This is one not to miss for anyone concerned about the less-than-honorable connection between the Press, Government, and Finance.

Excerpt from
the Preface
The Outline of Sanity is a lively and common-sense — but nonetheless rigorous — examination of how both capitalism and socialism really work in the day-to-day world, and an exposition of Chesterton & Co.'s alternative: Distributism. In The Outline Chesterton sets out his vision that the economy is made not to dominate man, but to serve him, and in so doing he judges both socialism and capitalism guilty of sacrificing the ultimate intrest of man — his simple and virtuous leading of this life with a view toward attaining the next — to his short-term material enrichment.

Ethics and the National Economy

Book details
Excerpt from
the Preface
Ethics and the National Economy was written by Jesuit Fr. Heinrich Pesch in 1917 as part of a symposium of Catholic thinkers on the problem of Christian Natural and International Law. His contribution stresses a truth which is as fundamental as it is today neglected: that morality must govern economic life. Taking apart the various aspects of economic activity, Fr. Pesch throws the light of the Moral Law on such topics as the manufacture of material goods, exchange of goods, remuneration and wages, justice in pricing, and of course he looks at what he calls the two "absurd consequences" of the individualist, free-market school of thought: Capitalism and Socialism.
