No economic system has ever been better than Capitalism. Just look at all the communist and socialist countries, and how oppressive or economically broken they are! China, Korea, Cuba, the former USSR, they're all AWFUL. And the european union is falling apart from the seams, and is only being held together thanks to germany. Obviously, since no good socialist or communist nation has ever existed, capitalism is the best economic system.

Plus, capitalism allows people to truly be free, and also receive rewards for their work, unlike socialism, where you get the same no matter how hard you labor. Who in there right mind would want that??

I do not support communism I support socialism.

Socialist countries, that you mentioned, include South Korea and China and their economies are actually brilliant.

The most capitalist countries on Earth are actually Uganda, Nigeria and Kenya. Let us now compare China and Korea to those three countries.

All have been taken from lovely wikipedia, feel free to find another source which gives conflicting information.
