Capitalist, of course, with antitrust safeguards against monopolies. I think antitrust laws should have been applied to companies like Amazon, Google and Facebook long ago.

And Bernie Sanders is talking nonsense about the Scandinavian countries. They are NOT socialist, they are capitalist with more extensive social programs than the US, mostly because they spend very little for defense; depending instead on the US to do it for them.

Every state should care about workers. I support free education and free healthcare. I am against brutal destroying of small business owners. Communists did not make difference between very rich and small business owners. They took brutally everything small business and peasants had killing them and accusing themfor collaboration with Nazis. Someone can earn money as honest man.

Socialism and Communism are pretty close to the same thing in ways and I want nothing to do with it. Capitalism has it's flaws but it's the better system!

Capitalism rewards working people. The problem is the rich get too rich.

Think I'll stick with Capitalism. Has it's goods and a few bads but it's the best way for this country! Never had any problems before and don't predict any in the future.

Medicare for all! What a crock! Who's going to pay for all of that including illegal aliens.

I heard that American health care is a lot expensive than other developed countries like the UK, Germany,  and Japan.

Hi Dan,

My views are, definitely, more toward socialism than the capitalism we have in the USA of the present day. Many of the economists/journalists/politicians I admire most, claim a socialist perspective.

I don't think we ever came out of the crash of 2008, I don't think our US economy is healthy now...with the Fed infusing, what is it, $60 billion each month into the banking system since September to fend off a house-of-cards collapse?

I watched your YouTube clip with Andy Puzder, and...nope.

From what I have been learning, I do think there is enough knowledge now to build an economic system that works. There are people working on that, and I am putting my efforts into helping that transition happen with as little disruption as possible...I am concerned about the possibility of violent collapse, which we need to avert.

My own personal favourite is the gift economy...it's not something that will ever predominate, at least not in the near future...but it infuses a wholesome perspective into a society.
