The following are some of the core ideas upon which “conservative” economic policy is based, in my estimation. Most of these are fairly common-sense and uncontroversial. It seems to me that for one to reject Capitalism (for lack of a better word), then one must hold to some other principle(s) that override all of this. But in acting upon those overriding principles, one must manage the consequences of suppressing these principles. If one agrees with the majority of the following, then they may be a Capitalist at heart, or should at least be sympathetic to those who prefer Capitalism. That is, they should not find it a wicked and unreasonable economic system, which seems to be a popular sentiment in the West these days.
