I disagree that socialism stifles creativity. Too much Ayn Rand in your diet maybe, cut back a bit ;-)It would however have different objectives, making money would not be one of them. I strongly disagree that money is people’s primary motivation for doing anything. Money should be compensation for doing unpleasant things if it should continue to exist at all.
If we could begin to build such a world that would nuture and develop individual creativity I think we would see an amazing amount of new innovations, arts, and sciences.Because capitalism does not do this and treats people as commodities, and only very few exceptional people are ever discovered, we probably lose an mind like an Einstien, a Mozart, a DaVinci every year to poverty.
