    We must only listen to the opinions of failures when it comes to capitalism.

    We don't have capitalism.

    I don't even like that word, really. I like free-markets. But if you say free-market and capitalism together, we don't have that today. What we have today is a planned economy. What we have is inflationism. We have economic intervention.We have central economic planning by a central bank. We have a belief in deficit financing. We have a welfae state. All of this is so far removed from capitalism that it's laughable to call it capitalism.
