Posted by: xhammy

Another failure that is the result of capitalism

Bank bailouts are not capitalism. By the definition of capitalism "an economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state." the state controlled bailouts make it not capitalism. It makes it socialism, or literally anything but capitalism once the government or state steps in to control it and prevent failure. This is a perfect example of why socialism does not work.

Yeah it really is the opposite of capitalism

The bank that gets so big that it needs to be bailed out otherwise it cripples the economy, that is due to capitalism

Your logic makes no sense. Capitalism would say that the bank should go bankrupt because it is inefficient in the free market. No government intervention in the free market is capitalistic

No they get too big in the first place to many people invest money in the bank, the bank then forecloses, everyone's money gone. Big banks thus big banks going bust are a result of free market

Bank is going to fail: Let it fail. Let it die. Do not institute socialism and call the failure capitalism.

They do not deserve it and I hate that it's necessary, but unfortunately no big banks means no economy and no liquidity in the stock market. We are better off with them than without them, as they are responsible for much of the circulation of our currency. "Necessary evil" comes to mind. I am ordinarily a Capitalist and am fully aware this is a Socialistic opinion, but it is unfortunately an accurate opinion. It is not the fault of Capitalism that the banks failed, as a matter of fact it is the Government's fault for endorsing clearly faulty mortgages that caused the economic crash. (government endorsement of anything points to socialism.)
