Saving Capitalism from the Capitalists is a groundbreaking book that will radically change our understanding of the capitalist system, particularly the role of financial markets. They are the catalyst for inspiring human ingenuity and spreading prosperity. The perception of many, especially in the wake of never-ending corporate scandals, is that financial markets are parasitic institutions that feed off the blood, sweat, and tears of the rest of us. The reality is far different.

This book breaks free of traditional ideological arguments of the Right and Left and points to a new way of understanding and spreading the extraordinary wealth-generating capabilities of capitalism.


"Raghuram G. Rajan and Luigi Zingales . . . argue persuasively that free markets 'cannot flourish without the very visible hand of government.'"--Alan Murray, Wall Street Journal

"Saving Capitalism from the Capitalists will dismay both titans of industry and their foes across the barricades. . . . It's written for the rest of us."--Peter Coy, Business Week

"[O]ne of the most powerful defenses of the free market ever written."--Bruce Bartlett, National Review Online
