Ayn Rand and Karl Marx (now, THERE'S a pair!!) will never forgive me for saying this, but historically,
REGULATED Capitalismworks just fine!
Ayn Rand wanted Capitalism with no regulation whatsoever. Karl Marx wanted no Capitalism at all, but plenty of regulation.
Like parentheses, between FDR and the New Deal = (, and Ronald Reagan = ), regulated Capitalism produced a fairly high level of general prosperity in this country. Take a good look at what FDR did and what Reagan UNdid, and things get pretty clear.
