WHAT !! Capitalism has pulled more people out of abject poverty than any other economic system and has increased the Standard of living for Billions of people around the World.
Of-course, what we've seen over the last 6 years economically is more Government intervention via Central Bank and Fiscal stimulus and this purely ideological approach that has had disastrous results all over the World.
Progressive's are beholden to the notion that a Government can spend, devalue and borrow its way into economic prosperity without realizing that this massive intervention has corrupted the underlying principles that have pulled so many out of poverty.
But after 6 years, 4 Trillion added to the FEDs books and Trillions added to the Debt the economy is still on life support.
" If no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else ? "

So ideologues like you have 2 choices. Accept that you have been hoodwinked into joining some cult like ideology or ATTEMPT to divert attention away from the failures of your ideology by blaming "Capitalism ".
Since Progressives don't understand the value of humility they'll ride their desperate assertions into the ground and take everyone else with them.
For example, the US Treasury, the US FED, the IMF and Central Banks all over the world applauded when Japan decided that they were going to double down on the policies that led to their insurmountable debt to GDP ratio.
To this day, as Japan allocates nearly 40 percent of their total revenues to debt service while their Central Bank is the ONLY one buying ( monetizing ) their debt, the US FED and idiots like Paul Krugman are still cheering them on.
So don't blame " Capitalism ".
