what USA has is NOT real capitalism
Which is why I said the US 'brand', because many fools think it is.
its time we stop calling it capitalism and start calling it what it really is, corporatism, aka a form of socialism
Only if the people who love it will stop saying they hate socialism.
but what america has and what you hate is SOCIALISM, and socialist government lied to YOU saying it was capitalism. the more socialist USA goes the more you people cry about how "bad" capitalism is, yet its socialism you are really hating.
socialism is crap, don;t believe me? look at USSR, North korea, Venezuella, China, Cuba etc etc, they all escape those hell holes, and while they are escaping you democrats are crying to have it here
Those countries don't have socialism. They lie and say it is
oh look, the good little communist sheep, denying the cold hard truth about an evil economic system
That's just laughable that you see a distinction between capitalism and corporatism but not one between communism and socialism.
It's simply the case that there are no examples of a pure ideological economic system in action, all politically run economies are corrupted by self serving politicians.
capitalism is private ownership of property and business, corporatism is government owned, BIG DIFFERENCE!
socialism/communism is both state owned property state owned business, and hardly any private ownership of anything, so yes its THE SAME DANG THING! communism is just a little more extreme then socialism
The government didn't own the rubber trade, cotton trade, sugar trade, oil companies, steal industry, coal industry or any of the businesses that perpetrated the slaughter of innocent lives in the name of profits.
There are lots of countries where the government does not own industry and they consider themselves socialist.
So I beg to differ with your distinctions and equivocations
Agreed. If quality dictates a marketplace, you can't begrudge another nation for besting your home nation in the production of a good.
Of course it does. Capitalism at it's American best.
I call bullshit. The US brand of capitalism does not have hands, and hence, wouldn't be able to tie anything to a wallet
