Looking back on the just-concluded Christmas season with all its frenetic, joyous activity we should draw a new and more benign perspective on our free market system. Every year the public hears complaints about the commercialization of Christmas. But this year those sentiments seem less relevant than ever as the holiday fuels a struggling economic recovery that seems in tune with the Christmas message of new hope and fresh starts. There’s nothing ugly about people expending energy and resources to give each other pleasure, expressing their love and connection to family and friends. In fact, exchange of gifts is the essence of capitalism-- making money by giving other people services and products that they want and need. Instead of worrying about capitalism redefining Christmas, we should celebrate the ability of Christmas to redefine capitalism.
