Socialism in the United States

  • Werner Sombart


What I have presented in the preceding pages was definitely not intended to describe the American economy (I hope to find the opportunity for this in later studies), and even less was it intended to depict American civilisation: furthermore, I never had any intention of giving a full portrayal of the American national character. Of course, much broader foundations would be needed for all those matters. In fact, the only purpose of those lines was to show circumstantial evidence of the existence in the United States of capitalism in an extraordinarily highly developed state. I hope that this is now regarded as having been demonstrated successfully, even if the ‘sympathetic reader’ has not been ready to follow me on all the digressions.
