Yo, all of my subliterate conservative criticasters who find perusing and processing the sesquipedalian verbiage of my posts to be such a bothersome brain-taxing chore, I have a new nickname for you. Henceforth you shall be known as Pooh Bears. No, not for the obvious apt reasons, i.e., not because you're full of pooh, and not because of your ursine irritability. Rather, you put me in mind of an A.A. Milne quote, "I am a Bear of Very Little Brain, and long words bother me". Love ya, Pooh Bears.

lol charles. Its flawed, but the best workable system we have.

its all about degrees. societies that tend to bend towards capitalism are on the balance more sustain-ably prosperous than those that don't.

Ah, but how well, in terms of ethical values such as equity and compassion is the considerable prosperity generated by capitalism distributed? Not well at all, and there's the rub.

The values are subjective. For me, the yardstick of a successful economic system is productivity, and capitalism has more of it. Government *can* after all, have proper distribution strategies to deal w/ inequity. And compassion is just a empty term with no real tangible measure.

Communism gives no proper incentives for innovation. That's my rub with it.

Ethical values concerning material well-being aren't all that subjective, they have to do with quite tangible conditions such as poverty, hunger, and homelessness.

For me, the yardstick of a successful economic system is productivity,

The excessive, amoral, and destructive drive for production and profit is actually one of the fundamental pathologies.

and capitalism has more of it. Government *can* after all, have proper distribution strategies to deal w/ inequity.

Government is co-opted by the considerable money power of capitalists & corporations and operates more in their interest than in the interest of the poor or the common good.

And compassion is just a empty term with no real tangible measure.

Utterly facile rubbish, and spoken like someone inculcated with the wertfrei worldview of capitalism and neoliberalism.

Communism gives no proper incentives for innovation. That's my rub with it.

Authentic communism, in fact, would be a form of life oriented for human creativity, and that would replace materialistic self-interest with self-actualization and fulfillment as motivation for productivity and innovation.

Yeah, these conditions were deplorable in India when we were socialist. Its improving now though. Thanks capitalism.

whyyyyyyyyy

moar money is good.

profit is good, i liek profit.

eh. interests of corporations and poor aren't a trade off. There can be lobbying and catering to there interests while still looking out for the poor through good schemes.

And compassion is just a empty term with no real tangible measure.

yeah, economic systems aren't there to cater to normative assumptions.

capitalism is perfect then, for it 'fulfills' the individuals through profit contingent on their ability to be creative.

and profit is good, as i said. i liek profit.

Straying from the socialist path of Nehru was a colossal mistake that India will soon rue.

The competitive drive for profit, accumulation, and expansion produces realization crises, crises of overproduction, destructive-to-economic-stability behavior on the part of capitalists & capitals. In short it produces the disequilibrium, the crises, the fundamental unviability of the capitalist system. It also drives ecologically ruinous behavior that India, not a part of the problem of capitalism, will in the not too distant future experience the catastrophic consequences of and be complicit in.

and capitalism has more of it. Government *can* after all, have proper distribution strategies to deal w/ inequity.

Government is co-opted by the considerable money power of capitalists & corporations and operates more in their interest than in the interest of the poor or the common good.

This is pretty glib and weak.

And compassion is just a empty term with no real tangible measure.

Utterly facile rubbish, and spoken like someone inculcated with the wertfrei worldview of capitalism and neoliberalism.

yeah, economic systems aren't there to cater to normative assumptions.

Translation: "As a wertfrei neoliberal I think that society should operate in a cold-bloodedly capitalist fashion and dispense with trying to be grounded in human caring and pro-social values."

Communism gives no proper incentives for innovation. That's my rub with it.

Authentic communism, in fact, would be a form of life oriented for human creativity, and that would replace materialistic self-interest with self-actualization and fulfillment as motivation for productivity and innovation.

capitalism is perfect then, for it 'fulfills' the individuals through profit contingent on their ability to be creative.

Sounds more like an ideological than an empirical, real-world description of capitalism. Alas, in actually-existing capitalism workers are alienated from their own creativity and fundamental creative nature by being forced to sell their labor, productive energies, and creativity to capitalist employers; i.e. by being forced to submit to being victims of exploitation (as opposed to being free creative agents) in a system of production geared for the enrichment of owners and executives; and by in fact being reified and commodified, i.e. dehumanized into mere cogs in the economy and economic units rather than human embodiments of creativity.

and profit is good, as i said. i liek profit.

Behold the true face of the capitalist, profit-oriented mentality,

It simply applies quite frequently to my critics. What's your issue with the word? And do you perhaps have any on-topic comments?

I didn't mean it in an accusatory sense (probably should have ended with a ":p"). I just find it funny how often you use it.

Okay, that's a legitimate observation. I suppose that we all have certain pet words in our vocabulary that we might sometimes fall into overusing. Btw, here's one that I cordially invite you to check out and participate in, http://www.debate.org...

lol charles. Its flawed, but the best workable system we have.

I apologise for the chaotic nature of this response. My intentions are good.

I don't think this is accurate. All of the 'developed' nations of the world consistently violated the principles of the free market. The 'East Asian miracle' is, as any serious research will show, the result of heavy government involvement in the economy.

Let's take the defender of the free market, Ronald Reagan:
"Another example is when Reagan imposed a 100% tariff on selected Japanese electronic products for allegedly "dumping" computer memory chips; he said he did it "to enforce the principles of free and fair trade." And Treasury Secretary James A. Baker stated that: Reagan "has granted more import relief to U.S. industry than any of his predecessors in more than half a century."

Reagen himself: "Tough foreign competition, in the last few years, has presented our manufacturers and our work force with a stiff challenge.... Made in America Month also provides an opportunity for American firms and workers to resolve to take greater advantage of new competitive opportunities both here at home and in overseas markets. We Americans do not shrink from competition; we believe in competition -- fair competition"

'Fair competition' being when you prevent your economy facing market discipline. Indeed, America heavily subsidies its economy, particularly the high-tech industry, which simply cannot survive without the government. Advanced technology is simply not profitable.

"In this book, Winfied Ruigrok and Rob van Tulder address many current debates on topics such as "Post-Fordism","globalisation" and "lean production".They also identify a number pf rival internationalisation strategies that have been adopted by different companies.Moreover,they present an abundance of new,as well as historical data,on the world's one hundred largest core companies.This data shows that none of the largest core firms is truly "global" or "borderless",and that virtually all of them in their history have benefited decisively from Governmental trade or industrial policies"
http://books.google.co.uk...

In this book they write that "at least 20 of the 1993 Fortune 100 would not have survived as independent companies, if they had not been saved by their respective governments".

Take the Third World. If you notice, their economic development slowed down at the same time that neoliberal economic policy became popular. Any honest analysis shows that development comes with abandoning the principles of the free market.

I couldn't describe those concepts without it. Charles, on the other hand, could get his message across just fine without using the word "facile". But there are terms and phrases I overuse. For instance, I often rely on "i.e." and "in other words" way too much than I should.

I know I know. You could switch it up with something else, viz. 'viz.'. I don't know how you're managing to say 'in other words' so much. There are far more condescending ways to convey the same meaning.

Well, I guess it's not the phrases themselves, but the fact that I too often use abrupt, cookie-cutter transitions.

I didn't mean it in an accusatory sense (probably should have ended with a ":p"). I just find it funny how often you use it.

Is your favourite prefix 'self-'? :P Self-contained, self-determining, self-defining etc.

I couldn't describe those concepts without it. Charles, on the other hand, could get his message across just fine without using the word "facile". But there are terms and phrases I overuse. For instance, I often rely on "i.e." and "in other words" way too much than I should.

I know I know. You could switch it up with something else, viz. 'viz.'. I don't know how you're managing to say 'in other words' so much. There are far more condescending ways to convey the same meaning.

Well, I guess it's not the phrases themselves, but the fact that I too often use abrupt, cookie-cutter transitions.

Noticing clich"s in your own writing is pretty annoying. It's like realising that you hate yourself.

Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Is "facile" your favorite word or something?

It simply applies quite frequently to my critics. What's your issue with the word? And do you perhaps have any on-topic comments?

I didn't mean it in an accusatory sense (probably should have ended with a ":p"). I just find it funny how often you use it.

Is your favourite prefix 'self-'? :P Self-contained, self-determining, self-defining etc.

I couldn't describe those concepts without it. Charles, on the other hand, could get his message across just fine without using the word "facile". But there are terms and phrases I overuse. For instance, I often rely on "i.e." and "in other words" way too much than I should.

I know I know. You could switch it up with something else, viz. 'viz.'. I don't know how you're managing to say 'in other words' so much. There are far more condescending ways to convey the same meaning.

Well, I guess it's not the phrases themselves, but the fact that I too often use abrupt, cookie-cutter transitions.

Noticing clich"s in your own writing is pretty annoying. It's like realising that you hate yourself.

I couldn't stop using em dashes if I tried - I'm hooked.

That was probably the worst joke I've ever seen.

It wasn't a joke - I really am - as you could say - addicted to the use of em dashes.

You ain't got nothing on Anthony: http://www.debate.org...

His sentences are choppy as fvck.

That's the meth. He claims he does it for the taste.

lol that would explain a lot.

I honestly think that I have more similarities with an elitist Puritan anarcho-capitalist than his discourse does with reality. Seems so to me anyway.

Lol.

Haha yeah, I thought he was just a little on the edge, but that sent him into cosmic levels of weirdness.

His posts are what I'd imagine Nietzsche would sound like after serious brain damage.
