Tawney, Richard H.
). Tawney was a committed Christian and this informed his criticism of the exploitative elements of capitalism. He argued that citizenship, equality of opportunity, collectivism, and a corporate society were necessary to eradicate the injustices associated with social class and inherited wealth. Social equality required also that the principles of liberty, equality, and fraternity operate on the factory floor. His is still an original critique of the excessive individualism threatened by capitalism and of the inefficiencies (for example the creation of poverty) in the free market.
