“The Bourgeois Virtues” Is Free eBook Of The Day

Today’s Free eBook of the Day is The Bourgeois Virtues: Ethics For An Age of Commerce by Deirdre N. McCloskey.

The eBook is part of McCloskey’s academic revisionist history of economics in the West, in which she argues that capitalism is not amoral.

The book’s description explains more: “In the first volume of the project she returns to Adam Smith and his largely overlooked discussion of moral sentiments. What is the moral code of capitalism? Is the free market moral? What are the virtues of the bourgeoisie? McCloskey takes on centuries of capitalism’s critics with her erudition and sheer scope of knowledge, affirming capitalism without ignoring its faults. The Bourgeois Virtues: Ethics for an Age of Commerce is fiercely contrarian intellectual history at its finest.”

The University of Chicago press has the download available for free throughout the month of November.
