Locke on Property John Locke, philosopher and founder of liberalism employed philosophy and religion to stablish an ideal form of government; which served as the base of the principles used by the Founding Fathers, when creating the Constitution of the United States. Locke asserts that the doctrine of property helps stablish the fundamentals of a systematic and competent government. In the Second Treatise of Government, Locke debates how the preservation of property is the Government’s most eminent function. From this notion, He emphasizes the importance of Political power, describing this as “a right of making laws with the penalties of death, and consequently all less Penalties, for the regulating and Preserving
The link between political science and economics are very clear. Policies that are being imposed really vary on the government or the political system. Likewise, the concept of the theory of the firm is dealt with political ideologies but there are some aspects of economics that we could argue are free of politics- demand side and the supply side.

Karl Marx and Max Weber both agreed that capitalism generates alienation in modern societies, but the cause for it were both different. For Marx it is due to economic inequality in where the capitalist thinks that the workers worth nothing more than a source of labour, that can be employed and dismissed at will. This causes the workers to be dehumanised by their jobs (in the past, routine factory work and in the present-day, managing demands on a computer), which leads to the workers finding slight satisfaction and feeling incapable of improving their situation. It was noted by Marx four methods on how capitalism alienates workers. The first, is alienation from the function of working.
