The Acquisitive Society by R. H. Tawney

"The Acquisitive Society" is a critique of capitalism and a call for a more equitable society. The author argues that the capitalist system rewards acquisitiveness rather than hard work or creative contribution, leading to a society that is both inequitable and inefficient. He proposes a society in which property is more evenly distributed and wealth is generated through service to the community, not through the accumulation of possessions. The book is a call for a radical restructuring of society in the name of fairness and efficiency.
