Heartland Capitalists

Season 1996 Roster


The Heartland Capitalists were created on November 30, 1983 (CBA Executive Bulletin No. 67) and played their first season in the Occidental Division of the old Flat League. Horatio Alger was the first owner and management specialist Peter Drucker was the skipper for the first several seasons. The Capitalists have always been a strong team, and they can usually be found in a pennant race. Michael Jordan bought the team in 1994 and brought on Karl Marx as field manager. This season the Capitalists are likely to dominate the Occidental Wing of the Underleague.


A ruling class must have ideas that are congenial to its rule. If most people in the United States believed strongly in socialism, then capitalism would be overthrown. A ruling class will usually attempt to make its own ideas the dominant ideas of its society-and usually it will succeed. If it does not succeed, a revolution is imminent. In the United States, the ideas of capitalism are dominant because of many things including the media, the education system, organized religion, the necessity of keeping a job, and the fact that capitalism is the only reality.
			William M. Dugger and Howard J. Sherman, 1994


With economic competition between communism and capitalism over, this other competition -- between two different forms of capitalism--has quickly taken over the economic playing field. Using a distinction first made by Harvard's George C. Lodge, the individualistic, Anglo- Saxon, British-American form of capitalism is going to face off against the communitarian German and Japanese variants of capitalism: The "I" of America or the United Kingdom versus "Das Volk" and "Japan Inc." The essential difference between the two is the relative stress placed on communitarian and individualistic values as the best route to economic success.
