Democratic
Capitalism,  The Way to a World of Peace and Plenty
by Ray Carey

Hard/Softcover/Kindle - 5 May, 2004, Available on Amazon.com

Ray Carey presents the theory and practice of democratic capitalism by coupling his experience with a synthesis of the thought of Adam Smith, Karl Marx, and John Stuart Mill.  The empirical evidence is clear: democratic capitalistic companies produce superior results, and nations that support economic freedom and keep money neutral improve the lives of their people.

An Enron Protector

After Enron and other scandals, Congress passed Sarbanes-Oxley, a typical “catch a crook” law that adds cost and solves little. Government’s own failure to control currency and credit for the general welfare allowed these disasters to happen. Only by limiting easy credit can they be prevented.

This has been the cause for every business cycle because your government treats money needed for job growth the same as money used for speculation. Why? Concentrated wealth concentrates political power; the former corrupts capitalism, the latter corrupts democracy by writing rules that privilege the few.

When government’s mission becomes truly the protection of jobs and pensions, it will use bank regulation to encourage job growth and limit risky speculation. When companies are required to project cash requirements for three years, the lack of control of speculation will become apparent and the brakes applied by increasing the cost of money and bank reserves.

Wage earners should demand that their elected representatives and money managers limit easy credit to protect jobs and pensions.

Dear Dean Dunlap:

I was very happy to hear about the plans for the “Carey Center” at Hamline University. It has been a source of much frustration to me that business concepts which I have seen working and which I admire have so little visibility in academia.

Ray Carey was Chairman of the Board and CEO of ADT Security Systems Inc. when I joined their Engineering Department in 1973. My specialty was Microwave Transmission Systems, and my previous employers were Bendix Navigation & Control Division and IT&T Avionics Div. Working at ADT was very different from working at either Bendix or IT&T.

ADT had a charter which was taken seriously. We, the employee-associates, were entrusted...
