Human Capitalist

A friend of mine lives in Falls Church, VA and occasionally sends columns from the Falls Church Free Press, all of which I have liked enormously.  In this column, Nicholas Benton defines his philosophy as being "human capitalism", and ends with the following:

"To me, it is about "human capital," as opposed to "finance capital," "social Darwinist" or "free market" capitalism. It promotes policies that focus on the investment of capital in the empowerment of human beings, who are, in fact, by far the most valuable commodity and potential source of new wealth and stability on the planet."

Great article.
