Alasdair MacIntyre believes that the Aristotelian, virtue-theoretic morality he supports is incompatible with the economic arrangements of capitalism. In this brief article, I show that MacIntyre's main arguments for this thesis are based on discredited theories from Marx, not Aristotle, and that the arguments MacIntyre gives are really based on Aristotelian, virtue-theoretic notions all fail.
