This brings back memories since I read this book as a freshman in college forty-five years ago. The thesis was good and has stood the test of time. Without Calvinistic Protestantism we probably would not have capitalism at least as we know it today.2

As an intellectual, Max Weber's contributions to the scholary cannon are exemplified in his groundbreaking work "The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism." The book explores the thesis of how capitalism was an actual byproduct (i.e., made possible by) of Protestantism itself, specifically, its puritan philosophy of delayed gratification, frugality, a strict work ethic, the pursuit of wealth and (importantly) the investment of that net gain. Weber argued that such a religious movement had in fact fostered capitalism itself, having a historical impact upon western society that cannot be overlooked or underestimated in any way. Although Weber is often thought of as a sociologist, in fact his scope was interdisciplinary. His intellectual emphasis weighed equally upon issues such as economics and related fields of study.3
