GUEST,Jack the Sailor blame CAPITALISM & jetison it!! (100* d) RE: blame CAPITALISM & jetison it!! 21 Sep 08

Lao Tsu:

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Socialism

Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Capitalism

Give a corporation access to TNT and they blow up the lake, making a short term killing, after which nobody gets any fish. Unregulated Capitalism.

Sawzaw's economic religion, like Bush's seems to ignore the most powerful force in economic behavior, enlightened self interest. Where the individual's (or corporation's) interest conflicts with society's, we need regulation. If the current crisis hasn't told you this then you have slept through it.
