I just wrote out a few thoughts on capitalism, but I thought I’d share a relevant clip here first.
It hits on a few points I ignored, comes at it from a different angle, but I’m a capitlist through and through; while I haven’t bothered to learn much about Friedman beyond a piece of an interview, I liked this video. It relates pretty well to my economic outlook.
Even if I go through my entire life being dirt poor, I wouldn’t dare blame that on the economic system. A mismanaged government might contribute to making things harder for people, myself included, but even so… if I die on the bottom of the heap, that’s ultimately going to be on me.
If you that’s where you end up when all is said and done, take a guess at who you can blame.
Here’s a hint for you…
