You sound like your flying!

: So capitalism works to a certain extent on a very micro level, it cant ever work the same on a global level because even if I got everyone in Ireland to boycott a product over pricing they capitalists would just go sell it in India or something.

I think the issue is that the effectiveness of a boycott is down to the individual buying decisions made by millions in the market place. Its this :

Votes to boycott : 51
Votes to Buy : 49

In fantasy 'democracy' the product is boycotted,

In market reality it means 51 people dont buy and 49 do.

Thats all.

: McSpotlight: Is that you, Lark?

Is kinda strange, like random pasting of the word 'cheeseburger'.

Assuming its Lark - hope yer having a merry christmas run up then!!
