It has a good article (not free) on capitalism, why it is the best and only economic system the world can have.

Rick,

What's there not to like about another issue dealing with morality? Hume was one of the great moral thinkers and moral developers of all time. He was also best friends with another moral thinker, Adam Smith, the so-called inventor of capitalism, a topic which is also highlighted in this issue.

That makes me think, is capitalism a moral system, a system that draws out moral principles and develops them? Is capitalism the prime anvil on which Civilization's morality is fashioned? I think Adam Smith would have thought so with his writing of The Theory of Moral Sentiment, juxtaposing his ideas about free market principles.
