—capitalism is a failure. It’s like the game monopoly. —
Except monopoly is nothing at all like real life. And capitalism is responsible for raising the world out of endemic violence ignorance disease and poverty.
The problem isn’t capitalism ( the voluntary organization of production ).
It’s that the richer we become, the more talented you need to be to earn a living.
When we had unused talent most people could move up.
Now we have passed the period where there is *unused* talent and entered the period where we have *unusable* talent.
Societies progress just as evolution progresses: by eliminating the failures to produce from the gene pool.
So has capitalism failed?
Or have we failed to continue to constrain the reproduction of the unproductive?
