Isn't Capitalism great?
The title is deliberate irony, because, NO, capitalism is not great.
Here, for your consideration, is an article that says exactly what I am trying to say. Just much better.
I would like to add a quotation from Douglas Adams, author of the zany Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: If you want something other than the obvious to happen; you've got to do something other than the obvious.
There is always a better way. We just have to want to find it.
