9. The problem with Capitalism As Is is that you eventually run out of other people's money.



Heavily regulate that shit, shore up your safety net, institute a truly progressive tax system, universal health care, make minimum wage a liveable wage and separate corporation from government and you have a different story.

has been waged to slander it.

16. Uh thats a rebuttal????

So you must play too much Monopoly in your basement. Capitalism, as you well know, has allowed more people to prosper than all previous systems of government.
