The HEARTLAND CAPITALISTS are CBA's team of businessmen and economists. There are three rookies on this season's edition: two rookies are American capitalists (Moore, Soros) and the third is an American economist and political philosopher (Sumner). Noted management consultant Peter Drucker is the team's new owner and already there has been some conflict between him and veteran manager Karl Marx. [Ed. Note: On February 24, Drucker fired Marx and took over the field managing himself.] Last season the Capitalists lost more games than they won (80-82) and if they don't get off to a strong start this season, look for some management adjustments.





"No system has benefited mankind so greatly as capitalism-- and none has ever been attacked so savagely, viciously, blindly."

-Ayn Rand

"The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles. Freeman and slave, patrician and plebian, lord and serf, guild-master and journeyman, in a word, oppressor and oppressed, stood in constant opposition to one another, carried on in an uninterrupted, now hidden, now open fight, a fight that each time ended either in a revolutionary reconstitution of society at large, or in the common ruin of the contending classes."

-Karl Marx
