In 1991, a small group of Russians emerged from the collapse of the Soviet Union claiming ownership some of the most valuable petroleum, natural gas and metal deposits in the world. By 1997, five of those individuals were on Forbes Magazine’s list of the world’s richest billionaires. These self-styled oligarchs were accused of using guile, intimidation, and occasionally violence to reap these rewards.

Schumpeter’s contention in this text that the seeds of capitalism’s decline were internal, and his equal and opposite hostility to centralist socialism have perplexed, engaged and infuriated readers since the book’s publication in the 1940s. By refusing to become an advocate for either position Schumpeter was able both to make his own original contribution and to clear the way for a more balanced consideration of one of the most important social movements of the 20th century.
