The American Enterprise System is the best form of economic system in the world.

MyGodKilledYourGod
Avelvetnightmare

For the sake of the debate, the American Enterprise System is not defined as the current system ran by the United States. It is instead defined as: A free market regulated in such a way that prevents monopolistic practices that unnecessarily raise ease of entry into markets and limits its own regulations on businesses and individuals. In essence a system designed to allow the most competition for all parties: workers, entrepreneurs, firms, and consumers a like. Rules, Round 1 Acceptance and O...
