Capitalist economies foster innovation and create growth

Capitalism is what underpins the world’s economy and is overwhelmingly the most successful economic model that mankind has devised.

The free market is a simple mechanism that brings together ideas for products and services, as well as the finance required to get them off the ground.

People who invest in an enterprise are taking a risk with their capital and are therefore entitled to share any financial rewards – just as they should accept any losses. This simple principle is followed in every corner of the world, from the dusty markets of third world villages to the boardrooms of the world’s richest corporations. 

In more sophisticated markets, the rules of this process are codified by formal capital markets and most investors participate through tightly-regulated exchanges of shares and bonds.
