It is heavy going, not light reading, but does provide an excellent analysis of the perils to democracy if capitalism and socialism fail to properly address economic problems.

The author warns that government interference in the market place is not the correct answer. His most interesting thesis seems to me to be that unfettered capitalism will fail due to its very economic success because critics will fail to remember the basic tenets that led to that success.

Schumpeter gives us a good look at recent U.

This book is a complex and systematic sociological discussion of the evolution of industrial economies in the pre era. It also includes a summary of Karl Marx’s theories, to help the reader follow the contrasts that Schumpeter draws between his observations and Marx’s.

It concludes with a number of sections containing Schumpeter’s views on contemporary political economy from the perspective of the dates of the book’s three editions: It’s written conversationally, with enough grace to draw the reader along in a complex argument sustained through a number of chapters. Nonetheless, the author’s self-indulgence also comes through: That’s okay, I wouldn’t have wanted it to be longer than it is.


This style works when you’re right, and Schumpeter was magnificently right about one of those key facts that everyone can see instantly once attention is drawn to it: Schumpeter connects product innovation with the efforts of individuals but concedes that it can be systematized also, which should have comforted him as he could see that the enterprise capita,isme was becoming bureaucratized. Schumpeter’s second outstanding observation is surprisingly less often remarked: Mainstream economics taught Chamberlin-Robinson “monopolistic competition” as an oddity but otherwise ignored this point for decades, entertaining itself by re-doing outmoded Marshallian analysis using the mathematics of perfect gases.


I know this sounds strange, but you could look it up. Schumpeter also has intriguing observations on capitallsme, although by not measuring his thoughts against his contemporaries’ he doesn’t help us see schuumpeter he is contributing.

He characterizes democracy as being essentially competitive rather than ethical, and in chapter XXIII he lays out five reasonable “Conditions for Success of the Democratic Method.

It is on socialism where I and other readers feel he stumbles. His sarcasm about centralized, comprehensive socialist economic planning may be well founded in terms of feasibility, but it’s unworthy rhetorically — although the fact that economists went on trying to lay the bases of comprehensive planning Lange-Lerner; Arrow-Debreu may suggest that there was a reason for Schumpeter’s frustration.

Like his treatment of socialism, Schumpeter’s supposed prediction of capitalism’s demise is largely rhetorical. First, Schumpeter defines capitalism as what we might almost call “Robber Baron” capitalism, whose primordially entrepreneurial firms he indeed predicts or post-dicts will be socialized, but through the stock market rather than by Bolsheviks.

Second, his argument about the end of private ownership in general is not a prediction but rather a provocation: With his concern about comprehensive public ownership, Schumpeter failed to take seriously the mixed economy.

Since Schumpeter’s time, technical economic analysis has helped identify the specific sectors, within a private-ownership economy, that may need “socializing” in some sense think basic medical servicesbased on concepts like public goods and incentive compatibilities.

Schumpeter missed that boat altogether. Like Marx, Schumpeter predicts the inevitable disintegration of the capitalist system. However, where Marx foresees the collapse as stemming from proletariat revolution, Schumpeter argues that the “actual and prospective performance” of capitalism is strong, and unlikely to fail. But, Schumpeter argues, it is these dmocratis successes which will ultimately destroy the social institutions, namely private property and free contracting, necessary for its continued survival.

As such, new conditions will emerge which will not allow capitalism to continue and socialism will become the dominant economic system. Capitalism is an evolutionary and dynamic process. This capitalisem state of motion joswph driven by the emergence of new methods of production and subsequently new consumer goodsthe pursuit of new markets, and improved forms of industrial organization As such, aspects of the internal capitalist system are constantly being revolutionized; old processes are being replaced with new processes in the name of progress and improvement.

Schumpeter refers to this process as a state of creative destruction.

It is what capitalism consists in and what every capitalist concern has to live in” The theory of creative destruction is based on the classic feature of capitalism, competition. Traditionally, capitalism is characterized by competition stemming from price, methods of production, and organization. This competitive attributes help to ensure the market efficiency of firms. However, Schumpeter argues that the real feature of capitalism is destructive competition.


Destructive competition includes dmoctatie emergence of new commodities, technologies, sources of supply and new types of organizations Where the traditional measures of competition allow for existing firms to evolve in a changing market, destructive competition tends to destroy those firms which become inefficient. It is this system of destructive competition that revolutionizes the internal capitalist structures.

Through socialismf process of destructive competition, Schumpeter argues that the vital institutions of te, ownership of property and freedom of choice in contracting, are destroyed. Schumpeter’s sentiment is illustrated through a brief examination of the collapse of the feudal structure. During the feudal period, changes in production and mechanization overran and obliterated the artisan and small producer.

Today, the same process can be observed in that larger, more efficient firms are eliminating rmocratie smaller, less efficient brethren.

Stated simply, the capitalist process attacks its own institutional framework. The entrepreneurial class, which fuels the dynamic capitalist system, is being retarded, or as Schumpeter suggests, “economic progress tends to become depersonalized and automatized” This is exemplified by the emergence of mega-companies in which the firm is rarely owned by one individual but rather is composed capitlaisme board members and stock holders.

Schumpeter argues that none of these actors truly own the company and as such lack the drive of the entrepreneur who owns his or her company.

What then emerges is capitalist stagnation. Individual choice is usurped by the interest of large corporations. Instead of relying on choice, corporations will come to agreements between themselves, thus creating a system of pseudo-monopoly.

With this limited competition, laws and regulations are imposed on the corporations rather than left to individual dmocartie As such, we begin to see the emergence of socialist ideology in that competition and ownership are removed, and replaced by a centralized governmental system of control.

Schumpeter (Joseph) – Capitalisme, Socialisme et Démocratie. -Imperialism and Social Classes

Of particular note, unlike Marx who sees the destruction of bourgeois entrepreneur as a necessary precondition to socialism, Schumpeter sees the same entrepreneur as integral to the success of the socialist transition.

Socialism will only emerge when capitalism has reached its maturity, that point in time where capitalism has destroyed its own vital institutions of ownership and choice. Although these institutions are eliminated, socialism still reaps the benefits from the technology, knowledge, and resources developed by the entrepreneurial class in the earlier stages of capitalism.
