For good or ill, the capitalism we have is the capitalism we have chosen. Capitalism works, and the challenge before us is not to change its structure but to address the moral vacuum at the core of its current practice.

Proposing virtuous choices as a way out of such pitfalls as the recent global financial crisis, he envisions a more just and flourishing capitalism for the good of all. Come with your questions.
