Pro

Capitalism is the greatest economic system ever conceived. This may seem to be quite a large claim, but it is clearly evident by the fact that this system alone has brought the world as far as it is today. Some reasons for capitalism include, it keeps people free, it believes in people, it promotes true equality, it promotes cooperation, and finally it is consistent with human nature.

Con

I believe in the policies of Bernie Sanders(FDR). I am not completely against Capitalism. There are some aspects of Capitalism that I completely agree with. I believe that there is a soft spot between Capitalism and Socialism. This soft spot that I speak of is practiced in Europe. For this debate, I will be providing evidence on how European Socialism has been effective at creating a happy society, while Americans suffer from unregulated crony capitalism.

Capitalism is the only way. It is, in fact, the only system that mathematically works, and it is also the only economic system that is free and that is corollary with man's rational nature.
