Default Inflation is proof of chrony capitalism

Explain to me how soda can cost 5 cents in the 50s and is $1.50 now. Thats over 1000+% increase.

Isnt easier now to produce soda? Of course it is. By this logic, it should be cheaper, not more expensive. If anything, soda should be damn near free by now. Like a stick of gum. This applies to alot of our commerce.

One more thing, free market my ass. I read alot recently about the food supply in the US.. something like 4 companies own all the meat distributors in the US. Thats uncanny. Also us controlling wheat during the great depression to keep prices high. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wickard_v._Filburn

wheat back then = gas now. tell me they aint controlling gas now with their bs speculations.

ps has anyone seen "in time" youll know what i mean.

now youre saying capitalism is the best way to run a society? every great thinker in the history of the world (aristotle, einstein, hawkings, nietzche, etc) has disagreed with capitalism.

bankshot >>>> einstein, aristotle, etc

Ok.... so you can't back your claim that I said capitalism is best. Figured as much, son.

Of course pure capitalism is flawed, which is why the U.S. economy doesn't behave like one. With that being said, a regulatory capitalistic economy is what works best today.

Do you have an alternative to the version of capitalism practiced and encouraged in the U.S.??
