All fairy tales have their dark sides or else they wouldn't resonate through our collective memories over the centuries. Well, the best ones do, and they're the only ones that stand the test of time…
But here's the thing that bugs me in here…I made my money (such as it is) as a small businessman. I love the free market. I have said this over and over, yet here you are, buckmeister, busting my chops because I DARE to suggest that capitalism is anything but absolutely perfect. Why the hell do you guys do that? EVERY economic system has problems, and we shouldn't pretend that ours is any different
no economic system is perfect, but capitalism is the best one by any measure.
Will you please show me where I have stated differently?!? I point out the flaws it has, because I always believe that we can do it better, and basically get called a marxist because of it
how exact;y would you make it 'better'? Keep in mind, I'm talking about 'capitalism', not 'crony capitalism' that we have today.
I would jack up usury laws so hard it'd be biblical
