What is Wrong with Capitalism?

As one of the great Anglican archbishops put it, if an economic system ” is abundantly effective in producing and distributing material goods, but creates or intensifies divisions and hostilities between people, that system is condemned, not on economic but on moral grounds, not because it fails to deliver the goods, but because it is a source of wrong personal relationships”:

William Temple, Christianity and the Social Order (1942).
