In our highly productive society a few people have vast wealth. They can purchase anything they desire. They have social influence. Others, in predictably large numbers, will fall asleep hungry tonight. Why the disparity?
In its complexity, our basic economic system has many moving parts. Each part has a story. The kaleidoscopic Tale of Capitalism gives you a collection of stories you might tell to friends.
You will find out how the economic system works, how it favors some while overlooking others, and how to make it better.
