We keep hearing that we really can have all the free stuff — like health care, child care, and college — that some other nations offer their citizens. All we have to do is move away from our capitalist economic system and adopt more socialist-style economic policies.

What’s the reality behind the advertisements for free social services? Who pays for them, and how do they work? Are capitalist businesses greedy and their profits bad for society? And what about socialism? Would it produce greater social justice for society than capitalism?

These and other questions are explored this little booklet. Read it and decide for yourself which system works better for you.

A copy of the booklet is free to high school and college students. For all other orders, we ask for a small donation to cover costs of printing and shipping.
