Michael Novak, Catholic Scholar Who Championed Capitalism, Dies at 83

“Capitalism forms morally better people than socialism does,” Mr. Novak said in a 2007 interview with Crisis, a magazine he and the scholar Ralph McInerny founded in 1982. “Capitalism teaches people to show initiative and imagination, to work cooperatively in teams, to love and to cherish the law; what is more, it forces persons not only to rely on themselves and their own moral qualities, but also to recognize those moral qualities in others and to cooperate with others freely.”

Publishing "Writing From Left to Right: My Journey From Liberal to Conservative" in 2013, Michael Novak creates various arguments and guides you through his many years in politics and education as well as his time in the Catholic seminary.
