This is a lecture from the first book of McCloskey’s trilogy on the Bourgeois values that she argues created/caused the great enrichment we call modern civilization and wealth.
To see her lectures on the next two books, here is a playlist of her work. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCLfai3kWoU&list=PL5P-EGmWzlrolONjturFnolohq7UzJqlw
Dr. McCloskey states that the "engine of invention" rather than investment led to the rise of the West. She believes that a "burst of creativity," and changing attitudes towards the bourgeoisie (from negative to positive), aided economic growth.
Most of all, however, she declares that virtue and capitalism must go hand-in-hand. In point of fact, she even says capitalism enhances the "7 Primary Virtues"—courage, justice, hope, faith, temperance, love, and prudence—and, generally speaking, brings out the best in us.
