What do you think will happen to the future of CAPITALISM?
That is completely up to "we the people." If we stand idly by while the goverment takes more of our liberties and regulates the businiess out of business, capitalism will fail. Every wants to save the planet for future generations when they should be worrying about saving their future livelihood.
I think, at least in the USA, Capitalism is slowly being taken over by Socialism. Everyone now seems to want the government to take care of their health care, retirement, and just about everything else. The US is dangerously close to too much government, at the expense of capitalism, which our country was founded upon. This will ultimately kill the will of the small businessman and make it nearly impossible for entrepreneurs to succeed, due to the ever increasing cut the government will need to support all it's socialist programs. Thus, capitalism will collapse and we will move close to socialism, and, ultimately, communism.
There's always the chance I'm wrong, of course; but I have every faith that capitalism in the US will have a dramatic resurgence after people get a little better taste of "socialist" policies, and their consequences.

I'm a Capitalist - what that means to me is that the closest thing to an ideal economy we can achieve is one where the government has almost no interference in the private business sector whatsoever. I think you can put Capitalism into one word: Freedom. The freedom to innovate, grow, succeed, or...

Does capitalism encourage greed? Does socialism punish merit and efficiency? Or do both philosophies have good and bad aspects?
