    How to Improve Capitalism



    Fix it or throw it away?
    I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.

    The power of the white world is threatened whenever a black man refuses to accept the white world's definitions.

    Redistribute wealth. Regulate. Tax.

    What is Good Business?



    It’s become easy to feel that all businesses are somehow bad and corrupt. Far from it. So long as they follow these six principles, any business can be good.

    Misemployment can be just as bad as unemployment.

    Do the people that make these videos run a business and employ people in a meaningful way? Just making sure, instead of just complaining in their minds that they don't think gambling is a good use of entertainment.

    What do the Rich really Want?



    Imagine if oddly, wealthy capitalists didn't primarily want money; but something odder and more hopeful: respect.

    Against Philanthropy



    The best way to do good in the world is not to be a philanthropist. It’s to be a good capitalist. The need to 'give back' is generally chiefly a sign that people took too much to begin with.

    You really have to counter arguments, do you? And yet you can't allow yourself to agree, so you attack the messenger? Really?

    Tsk, tsk, tsk.

    No, the person complaining about how employers are employing people in the wrong should be out employing people in the right way. Hey it's wrong for the Casino company to employ people to hand out leaflet and look at our company Y that employs ever single one of it's employees to be productive. I'm sorry, but the multitude of jobs that are out there, aren't going to be the shiny feel good jobs.

    I don't have time to digest all this now, but at least the title of the thread is good.. "improve". Maybe we can have a decent discussion without the usual trolls preaching for the destruction of the market and ruining the thread.
