Friends, we come here to day to witness me engage in another fruitless rant about flaws in Capitalism that to me seem completely obvious. I must therefore include the usual disclaimer about how I don’t actually know anything about Economics, so if an economist would like to post in the comments section and tell me why I’m wrong that would be most welcome.
Seriously, if I’m wrong then I want to know about it so please tell me.
The downside of not knowing anything about Economics is that I often get corrected on things (which isn’t actually that bad because that’s how I learn). The upside is that if I cannot be beaten in an argument on these issues, by people who have studied Economics, then that means there is something seriously wrong with their ideas.
If you can’t even beat me what the fuck are you going to do against trained opponents?
So anyway, what am I doing today? Oh not much, I’m just trying to debunk the very basis of the global financial system: the idea that profit is always good. You probably know it as “Free Market Capitalism”.
