Schumpeter called capitalism a process of "creative destruction" because it overthrows old routines and methods of production. But he recognized that this process is unstable, and therefore unsettling, for those who have become accustomed to established ways. Schumpeter predicted growing political opposition to capitalism, and a corresponding growth in socialism, in the 20th century.

No - the writing did not cover the ground I expected.
Have not listened to any others. Passages read in silly accents that I suppose were intended to sound like their authors' voices detracted from the performance.
I expected a book on Schumpeter's economic theories, but instead got a lot of biographical notes, a handful of quotations read in silly accents, and only a superficial overview of the economic theories. Very disappointing.
