Whenever I travel abroad, I am always amazed at how many people view United States Capitalism as a negative and exploitive system. There is seldom a reference to the positive outcomes of impact capitalism. And the negatives are usually more attributable to corporatism than capitalism. Even more frightening is how more young people in the US are viewing capitalism as a harmful system and should be replaced by socialist ideas.
On this Independence Day 2018, let’s celebrate the right (and liberty) to pursue impact capitalism as we see fit. We make lives better through capitalism and business ownership. And we should continue to defend this independence. Maybe we should also wish people on this 4th of July a “Happy Impact Capitalist day” as well. I think that an impact capitalist mindset would be approved by the founding fathers.
