Capitalism, A Love Story

Recommended Posts

Just finished watching this movie...moore was pretty on target, at least as far as the collapse goes, but it was very surface level. he talks about a lot of the stuff Jones does too, which i found funny. the second half was garbage. it was very partisan, which wasn't surprising. i would disagree that capitalism is the cause of the recent financial collapses, and mishandling of money. i would place the blame on corruption within the system.

anyone else see this movie? opinions?

Yes I liked the partisan part where Clinton was responsible for the whole thing, and the partisan part about how only the Republicans voted for the bailout.

I saw it. I thought he was pretty accurate, minus the whole bailouts = capitalism angle.

I think he took it easy on Obama for the simple fact that Obama hadn't had a chance to do anything at that time. If there's a follow-up to this, hopefully Moore tells it like it is and rips Obama a new one.

Capitalism with goverment oversight, particularly in the financial sector, is best.

thats kinda hard when the government is in bed with the corporations. i mean, the entire executive is branch is made up of wall street.

A relative of mine is interviewed in that movie: Rep Marcy Kaptur from Ohio. She is one of the smartest women in politics (and is the kind of woman who should get a VP nod over a hockey mom like Palin).

I haven't seen the film yet, but I know her stance. Watch this one from the bailout; I love it.

Ayn Rand, that little toad is the Machiavelli of economics... don't blame the businessmen for their ethics because what they do is amoral... yada yada yada. Blech.

I'm all for capitalism, but every action has its consequences. Rand allows those who see themselves as "producers" to look down on anyone they wish as a "moocher" rather than as a person who contributes to society as well. It absolves the a**hole of the need to be wiped clean once in a while, if you understand.
