Capitalism is failing us - it's time to get more creative
The myth that policies and practices radically focused on capitalist free enterprise would raise the wealth of all, creating a trickle-down effect, seems to survive despite the evidence to the contrary.
Most serious economists show that there is a flood of wealth upwards. The beneficiaries of the fruits of raw capitalist thinking see poverty as a regrettable by-product of the way the world works.
We seem incapable of thinking more creatively, creating a world that works for everyone.
