Capitalism and charity

As I was checking my email this morning, I ran across an article about why capitalism and charity truly go hand in hand. The main point that I agree with wholeheartedly is that anyone who wants to succeed in a capitalistic society must help others do the same.

I tried to write a quick summary of the whole article (it is lengthy), but I failed miserably in my view. So......please go to the link to read it. It is worth a read, or at least a scan to pick up the major points if you are in a hurry.

It's so interesting to me, that for every single finance book I've read by someone who really has made it, they always recommend giving at least 10% away. They attribute it to things like the law of attraction, or paying it forward, but invariably they recommend giving to charity.
