Ronald W. Dworkin wrote his recent book to save American capitalism. He contends that neither modern liberalism nor conservatism are up to the task, and are indeed causes of the problem. Rather, we must go back to Karl Marx, whose ideas indirectly saved the earlier version of capitalism through reforms that moderated its viciousness.
