Here is a list of the best Capitalism books, some I have read myself, some that I did research on, and all have great reviews!

1. Capitalism and Freedom: Fortieth Anniversary Edition (2002)

Best Capitalism Books: The Ultimate CollectionSelected by the Times Literary Supplement as one of the “hundred most influential books since the war” How can we benefit from the promise of government while avoiding the threat it poses to individual freedom? In this classic book, Milton Friedman provides the definitive statement of his immensely influential economic philosophy—one in which competitive capitalism serves as both a device for achieving economic freedom and a necessary condition for political freedom.

3. Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal (1967)

Best Capitalism Books: The Ultimate Collection“The foundations of capitalism are being battered by a flood of altruism, which is the cause of the modern world’s collapse. This is the view of Ayn Rand, a view so radically opposed to prevailing attitudes that it constitutes a major philosophic revolution. In this series of essays, she presents her stand on the persecution of big business, the causes of war, the default of conservatism, and the evils of altruism. Here is a challenging new look at modern society by one of the most provocative intellectuals on the American scene.” ~ from the book’s back…

5. Capitalism without Capital: The Rise of the Intangible Economy (2018)

Best Capitalism Books: The Ultimate CollectionEarly in the twenty-first century, a quiet revolution occurred. For the first time, the major developed economies began to invest more in intangible assets, like design, branding, and software, than in tangible assets, like machinery, buildings, and computers. For all sorts of businesses, the ability to deploy assets that one can neither see nor touch is increasingly the main source of long-term success. But this is not just a familiar story of the so-called new economy. Capitalism without Capital shows that the growing importance of intangible assets has also played a role…
