Tell me what you think about Capitalism

capitalismLast week I wrote about Capitalism and outlined some of its plus points and negative aspects. Is it the best thing since sliced bead? Does it need controlling and is it harmful to the world’s poorest people?

I invite you to take part in a simple anonymous poll to express what you think!

  1. While we’ve got the current corrupt banking system, both socialism and capitalism will be exploited by a few people to steal practically all of the wealth (unless the government was runs a surplus, which is unlikely to ever happen in the UK or USA – unlike Norway!)

    Capitalism works okay up to a point, but is in no way perfect and too easily corrupted. Most people would like to believe in some kind of meritocracy where hard work or taking reasonable risk (with own money) are rewarded appropriately. Unfortunately that’s nothing like what we’ve got. Moral hazzard, conflicts of interest, revolving doors between corporations and regulators/lawmakers/government are rife, and these things only appear to be getting worse.

    Putting medical care into the hands of the capitalists was a particularly bad mistake, when everything is done only for profit. Yet this was deliberately engineered by the Rockerfellers, at the same time diverting all attention away from their industries which were the source of much disease.. Interested?

  2. I wouldn’t say ” Capitalism is a major cause of the gap between rich and poor”
    The major cause is greed, which infects and corrodes any system, including Capitalism.

    What we need is an end to top top people deciding their own pay, in industry, in government, and now even in charities.
