How the Egalitarian Aspects of Capitalism are Underappreciated | Rory Sutherland

Rory Sutherland, the vice chairman of the legendary global advertising agency Ogilivy UK. Fittingly enough, Sutherland’s latest book is called Alchemy: The Dark Art and Curious Science of Creating Magic in Brands, Business, and Life. It explains why the real genius of capitalism isn’t maximizing output but the ways in which creative destruction fulfills desires we never knew we had, allowing us to become whatever we want to be. He’s a critic of economistic thinking on the right and the left that reduces all human activity to mere utility and material considerations.
