But the quickest road to recovery is not to interfere with the corrective processes markets undertake. Better yet, we should abolish the policies that cause financial crises and recessions. The economic achievements of today’s society came from capitalism, while the recessions, inflations, unemployment, and lack of increasing real wages came from anti-capitalistic interventions in the market. This book aims to prove these assertions by explaining the relationship among human action, labor and the production of goods, and money in accessible terms that require no previous study of economics.

25 Were there no waiting and no capital involved, a company’s costs would equal the amount of money it brought in. What does all this led up to? Simply this: far from exploiting workers, companies do exactly the opposite. They (1) create jobs, (2) pay workers more than they would make on their own by being self-employed, and (3) provide the tools, technology, and machines to improve productivity and increase profits, thereby raising wages. All of this is thanks to entrepreneurs, business owners, and capitalists (who in some cases may be one and the same).

They argue that some or all of the profits should instead be paid to all the workers in a company instead of being kept by the capitalists. They suggest that workers are not being paid for the full value of what they produce. This is a grave misconception. To see why we must understand what this standard rate of profit is and why it exists. The answer will tell us why workers don’t receive this profit in the form of additional wages. In reality, this standard rate of profit is not a profit at all—it is a mix of two different things.
