Utopia of Usurers

By G. K. Chesterton


Click here for the book review.

Experience Chesterton at his energetic and boisterous best as he takes on the economic and cultural apostles of modern, industrial capitalism in this collection of articles written from 1913-1915, yet which have more meaning today than when they were first published.


Chesterton looks at all aspects of modern, industrial capitalism, and finds them lacking. He analyzes the effect of the capitalist mentality on – among other things – art, culture, family life, work, and working conditions. With classic Chestertonian wit and rigorous logic, GKC points out how every single one of those aspects of daily, human life have suffered tremendously from an attitude that makes financial and material gain the End of life, at the expense of those higher values without which life is hardly worth living.
