Let's talk about capitalism
 
During the last few years, more and more voices have begun to criticize capitalism's adverse effects. In Greece, Syriza has appeared as a voice against the austerity imposed by the neoliberal European Union. Podemos has played a similar role in Spain. In Paris, “Nuit debout” protesters have occupied public squares, in a way similar to the Occupy Protesters in New York. We have all heard what the problems are, now the point is to propose solutions. How do we fix corruption? How do we create a democracy for working people? How do we fight economic inequality? Should capitalism be abolished? How should that be done?

I say we abolish it and keep the type of government that has never had any problems.

Love this idea.

Shameless plug.

No. That's just the toilet getting flushed.

It's the best economic system we have created up to this point, and I'd be in favour of less regulation and taxes. But I don't know enough to say if that would work.

Corporatism is the real issue.

I (being serious) agree with everything you said. I am yet to see a system come along that doesn't work as well as capitalism.

How would it be possible to abolish corporatism but maintain private ownership? The age of monopolies has existed for a hundred years, and there's no reason to assume that the free market capitalism of the 1800s will redevelop, or that it would even be desirable.

Yes. But monopolies have been written out fairly well. The ones that still exist unfortunately only exist through most likely illegal means of buying out the people who are suppose to stop them.
