Intersting link bokonon, I had not heard of that book but it looks interesting. Thanks for the idea!
An alternative to capitalism?
The main problem with capitaism is that there isnt enough of it. Business has to be accountable to governments who properly supervise what key industries like finance (so that we never get a bank the size of RBS in our midst) are doing, then keep out of the way as much as possible.
Global indicators of wellbeing are improving all the time. Its not fashionable to say it but it isnt an accident that this is happening exactly when the Chinese and Indian governments are abandoning state socialism and hundereds of millions of their citizens are moving off the land.
Want socialism? Have a look at what is happening to Venezuala as they start running out of money.
