One side needs to realize that the pursuit of profit, the pursuit of riches is an imperfect system, yet one of the best methods in human history of creating wealth in a large land filled with diverse peoples.

Not "creating wealth", but "consolidating wealth".

Pursuit of such riches is a rising tide that lifts many boats.

Neither, apparently, has The Economist:

Or perhaps they know something you don't?
