Dr Kristian Niemietz writes for The Telegraph

IEA Head of Politcial Economy Dr Kristian Niemietz  has written an article for The Telegraph saying Anti-capitalism is based on “an emotional, visceral dislike of the market economy, and anti-capitalist arguments are just a post-hoc attempt to rationalise that gut feeling”.

Niemietz argues that because of this attitude, even when private enterprise saves the day  – such has been the case with Covid vaccines – anti-capitalists, such as socialist writer Owen Jones, still manage to find fault somehow. Instead, we should be “profoundly relaxed if people make a killing by ridding us of Covid.”
