The case for freer markets
“German academic Rainer Zitelmann thinks critics of capitalism overlook the extent to which free markets have generated prosperity. His book looks at multiple case studies to make his point about the superiority of markets … The book is well written and gives a good, concise summary of the case for freer markets.”

Socialism fails again: Venezuela – how we got here
Venezuela hasn’t failed because of low oil prices or because of economic sanctions imposed by the USA. Once again, we have seen a socialist experiment fail – an experiment that was hailed by left-wing politicians and intellectuals around the world just a few years ago.

Chile: Latin America’s capitalist alternative to Venezuela
Chile and Venezuela constitute two contrasting economic models in Latin America. Chile embodies the capitalist path, Venezuela the socialist path. But Chile has also had its own troubles: First under the socialism of Allende and later under the dictatorship of Pinochet.

Socialism fails again: Venezuela – the background story
Venezuela hasn’t failed because of low oil prices or because of economic sanctions imposed by the USA. Once again, we have seen a socialist experiment fail – an experiment that was hailed by left-wing politicians and intellectuals around the world just a few years ago. Here is an excerpt from the 2018 book by the German historian and sociologist Rainer Zitelmann, The Power of Capitalism, on the events that led to Venezuela’s collapse.

A waning power? Rainer Zitelmann on the threats to global capitalism
“There are few more enthusiastic advocates for capitalism than Rainer Zitelmann. The German is a rare creature, an academic historian who has also worked on one of Germany’s biggest newspapers and later became a successful entrepreneur, selling his property PR company in 2016. His views on the merits of capitalism are shaped not by armchair theorising, but a mixture of historical knowledge, academic study of entrepeneurship and his own hands-on experience in the world of business. Zitelmann’s latest book, The Power of Capitalism – his 21st – is a full-throated defence of a system he believes has led to huge improvements in people’s quality of life the world over. When we meet in his London hotel, Zitelmann is a picture of relaxation. But his personal ebullience cannot mask a deep concern about the way the world is heading. Be it Trump’s tariffs, Corbyn’s obsession with nationalisation or his own country’s drift into statism, assaults on free enterprise are all around.”

A revolution in Berlin
I had a drink on Tuesday night with Dr Rainer Zitelmann, the German author, academic and entrepreneur. His books on the psychological traits of the super-rich and in defence of capitalism are tremendous, so it was a pleasure to talk to him.
In the vault bar of The Ned – a former bank HQ – he stood out (though wasn’t out of place) in his “I Love Capitalism” T-shirt.
We talked about the views on Brexit in our respective countries, but he was more animated by another referendum – one that could soon take place in his native Berlin.
Eighty-five per cent of Berliners rent their home rather than own it, and anger has grown at the portfolios amassed by large landlords. If enough signatures are gathered a referendum could be forced, calling for the expropriation of property from companies that own more than 3,000 apartments.
Polls suggest it could pass, leaving the cash-strapped city council responsible for billions of euros in compensation. Truly these are revolutionary times in Berlin.
