Money alone does not a capitalist make

“Every right implies a responsibility; Every opportunity, an obligation, Every possession, a duty.”
— John D. Rockefeller

It isn’t mere chance that a whole generation of robber barons were produced in America. America has nurtured the right conditions to promote free enterprise and there can be no better example of the success of free enterprise than John D. Rockefeller.

It is a pity that such greatness was not recognized during its time and even now people misunderstand the true purpose of his capitalism. Rockefeller understood that sound economics and tireless work ethics can be the only saviors of modern civilization.

Rockefeller embodied the spirit of capitalism and worked tirelessly to create value for the consumer as well as society in general. The debt that we all owe to this titan of industry cannot be measured. The only redress can be to imbibe some of that great spirit.
