    A new day and a blank comments page. A rather uncontroversial drawing and caption. How will this turn out?

    She has the typical collectivist wrong theory that the economy is a zero sum game…

    Liberal Logic; " I can sell this branch for 20 bucks and give 40 bucks to welfare."

    I Think we are about to see the fallen dreams and broken butt of typical MBA thinking. Unless, like in some TV cartoons, the tree falls down and the guy on the limb stays suspended in air. That scenario would correspond more closely not to capitalism but to the way the government makes budgets. But let him fall and splatter like a tomato, then bring back Kranti and some of the others; i’m getting tired of Chip clones.

    On further reflection, in the good old USA, the guy on the limb will fall and then sue whoever planted the tree in the first place.

    It may seem irrational, even ridiculous, that capitalists can’t work together to solve their crisis without all the destruction. Instead of converting the last remnants of the natural world into junk, why can’t they invest their extra wealth in positive projects such as land rehabilitation, or meeting the people’s basic needs so they don’t revolt?

    Capitalism seems to make no sense when you look at it as a non-capitalist. Yet it has its own crazy internal logic because of it being based on, and driven by, competition. Every individual capitalist must always choose immediate short-term profits even over their own long-term survival.

    let me think I have money I am going to invest it to make a profit. Should i make it here so I can hire more people so it can sit on shelves and I can go broke or should I make it in china that way it will fly off the shelf and I can make money

    Stephanie, I agree with you in part. The American capitalist can’t see farther than the pointy end of his wing tip shoes and lives and dies by the quarterly report, while the Japanese capatilists tend to think long term and are willing to invest lots of Yen short term for bigger profits long term. However, they are not any nicer to those below them and the environment than we are.

    best described by the phrase state capitalism.
