The author explores the origin of recent antipathy towards capitalism, and asks if such antipathy is truly fair. In retrospect, Korea has achieved a rapid economic growth thanks to an active capitalism system. However, those who have benefited most from capitalism ignore their obligation to step forward and defended capitalism and economic liberalism. It is fair therefore to say unconditional antipathy towards capitalism needs to be reconsidered. Capitalism allows social prosperity and personal freedom together with efficiency. It is thus a natural and just system.

This book tries to explain such justness and efficiency of capitalism. And the author's perspective starts from the idea that the capitalism cannot be fully protected if it is not actively defended. He also takes new direction in discussing capitalism here. He introduces the recent accomplishments in biology sector to produce new insights regarding human nature.
