Weber argues that the same is true of capitalism —it exists in a sophisticated manner that has never before existed anywhere else in the world. Weber maintained that while Puritan religious ideas had significantly impacted the development of economic system in Europe and United States, there were other factors in play, as well. Cross-country studies have arrived at similar conclusions.

    For some manual work, perhaps a brute-strength definition is best: it takes more effort to haul 20 The Protestant work ethic book at once than After defining the "spirit of capitalism," Weber argues that there are many reasons to find its origins in the religious ideas of the Reformation. Weber failed to explain the fact that the reformation by John Calvin and Martin Luther king was a reaction towards the capitalistic tendencies of the Catholic Church as opposed to his explanation that it was a way of allowing protestant capitalism to develop. A common illustration is that of a cobbler, hunched over his work, who devotes his entire effort to the praise of God. Because they were some of the first major settlers of the United States, they had a rather profound influence on our country's economic development.

    Whereas Catholicism teaches that good works are required of Catholics as a necessary manifestation of the faith they received, and that faith apart from works is dead James —26 and barren, the Calvinist theologians taught that only those who were predestined to be saved would be saved. Enter a group of Dutch economists, who have discovered that the Protestant work ethic is real. The influence of Protestantism on American capitalism has been a matter of considerable debate since German sociologist Max Weber wrote The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalismin Weber maintained that while Puritan religious ideas had significantly impacted the development of economic system in Europe and United States, there were other factors in play, as well.
