We found someone who brilliantly explains why free-market capitalism is destined to destroy the world, absent a historic paradigm shift: That is Harvard philosopher Michael Sandel.
Earlier today I was thinking about the proverb, “This too shall pass”, and how it can be related to anything in the world and of the world. I was thinking how it can be changed to, “This too shall sell”, after reading a tweet from InjusticeFacts that said, “In the United States people put 10x more of their energy into being rich and famous than helping people in their communities.” I just so happened to come across this article about capitalism a minute ago.
“…capitalism is not working: A billion live on less than two dollars a day. With global population exploding to 10 billion by 2050, that inequality gap will grow, fueling revolutions, wars, adding more billionaires and more folks surviving on two bucks a day.”
Capitalism is destroying our moral values and making us delusional to the negative affects its having in America’s communities (and some foreign countries) as a whole. There needs to be some limitations in my opinion. You can check out the article for yourself here: http://www.marketwatch.com/story/capitalism-is-killing-our-morals-our-future-2013-04-27
