Capitalism Can’t Be Repaired, Coronavirus Shows Its Huge Weaknesses By Richard D. Wolff April 27, 2020
I agree with this article as it defines the impact of American Corporate Welfare Capitalism that is essentially non-competitive in how it manifests in this country pretending to support a free market.
“Consider this absurdity: The U.S. government’s policy in the face of the current capitalist crash is to ‘return the economy to the pre-coronavirus normal.’
In that ‘normal’ system, private capitalists maximized profits by not producing the tests, masks, ventilators, beds, etc., needed when coronavirus hit. Profit-driven capitalism proved extremely inefficient in its response to the virus.”
