: I'm sure Stoller would argue otherwise.

I do not care at all for anything Stroller has to say, he's part of the dead wood on the socialist tree, I think you talk more sense than him and your a capitalist.

: Its not that capitalism has been 'betrayed' as such. The problems are more complex. Some people have called corporatism, with its crony ism in government, 'socialism for the rich'. In other words they buy exemption from competition by using the power of government (in a very much voluntary two way deal).

Yeah, but gee I reckon that the rightful inheretors of the legacy of Smith would have been the ones that opted for state enterprise and regulation to prevent that or state enforcement of competiton, you know Keynes and co.

: That people dont seem to care is alarming, that people think this is what capitalism is all about is more so.

I can understand you when you say that, if it even asked for my approval or consent before it made me unemployed and every commodity overpriced I wouldnt be marginally impressed but it's like here like it or lump it there's no kind of alternative at all.
