This page will host links to a project on "Stories about Capitalism." 


Here are two 90-second videos presenting the two stories:

Video of Story 1: Capitalism is Exploitation


Video of Story 2: Capitalism is Liberation

Below is Jonathan Haidt's talk at Zurich Minds, which introduced these two short videos and discussed their implications for business ethics, as well as for political disagreements about business and capitalism.

Here are two blog posts expanding on the talk, and the two stories:

Making capitalism more ethical, on the EthicalSystems blog; discusses applications to business ethics.

Two stories about capitalism, which explain why economists don't converge, on the Righteous Mind blog; discusses how motivated reasoning influences economic thinking.
