    • Abstract:
      The article refers to moral aspects of industrialization in the United States, an argument that denies conflict between religious and business ethics, and the morality, spirituality, and efficiency of capitalism. The capitalist economic structure is private ownership of the means of production and distribution, which is based on profit rather than human need. Capitalism's profit motive generally operates in the public interest and is not in conflict with Christian values because the economic system can make social adjustments and compensate for injustice. Topics include the Tennessee Valley Authority and Muscle Shoals power developments, the evolutionary aspect of capitalism, state socialism, a quotation from Scripture, and the significance of individual moral responsibility.
