My Views On Capitalism

Capitalist Cares

Capitalism is not greed. Whenever I say this people look at me like I’m crazy. Of course capitalism is greed. It’s all about greed, it’s the greediest of all political and economic structures, but I swear to you I am not greedy, but I am a capitalist.

What is Capitalism?

Capitalism is an economic structure that’s all about making a profit. In it’s essence, this seems like a good idea. It’s all about making money and improving your stature in life, for a guy like me who started life with hand-me-down clothes and that special “brand new school outfit” every year, capitalism is just “getting out of the gutter and making something of myself.” Is this greedy? I don’t think so. In fact, I know it’s not.

Knittedfog Does Not Know Capitalism!

I say good for those she calls the 10% and may she be just as well blessed in the future. If you check history, you will find that Capitalism has been the best system to allow mobility for the poor to become wealthy.

So, a capitalist demo in Manchester on May 9th, pity so few are out.

The real capitalists (the 10%, who own the 90%) have Zombie recruits – they really must be mentally ill!

CHARGE YOUR CELL PHONE IN < 1 MIN!?

Intel Foundation’s Young Scientist Award honors Eesha Khare, 18, of Saratoga for her work in chemistry that created a tiny device that fits inside a cellphone battery and charges it completely in just 20 to 30 seconds.

Capitalism will reward Eesha via profits. However, non-capitalist models might have awarded grants to Eesha to ‘study the problem.’ Where profits motivate Eesha’s to solve the problem, would green government grants only motivate Eesha to devise ways to extend those grants year after year?

TESLA PAYS OFF $452M GOV’T LOAN

So Tesla pays off its government loan early. But should they have gotten a government loan in the first place within a truly capitalistic system? What would have happen if they failed? Did the government provide an unfair competitive advantage to Tesla by giving them a loan? How did this effect Tesla’s competition? Is this an example of government and private industry colluding?

The WeCapitalistRock Blog First Post

Well, here it is! The We Capitalists Rock blog! This is a personal blog where news stories will be chronicled based on two criteria:

a) Details of why Capitalism is the greatest model known to man to date

b Political stories that support show where government are good (and bad) capitalist actors.

All in all, like most blogs, it will be cathartic for the blogger (me). 😉

Cheers to capitalism and capitalists!
