Spirit of Capitalism

I’m trying to study for my Sociology course and I need some help to understand this question.

  • In three to four sentences summarize the main argument of Weber’s theory. In what ways were Protestant beliefs amenable to the development of a capitalist economy?
  • Use your sociological imagination to develop your own summary of the “spirit” of capitalism. Find a common idea/saying about money. It can be one that you hear in media or it can be one that was a part of your upbringing (or both). What does this idea about money say about our values?
