    Capitalism seen doing 'more harm than good' in global survey

    Nearly 1.1 billion fewer people are living in extreme poverty than in 1990.
    In 2015, 736 million people lived on less than $1.90 a day, down from 1.85 billion in 1990.

    So not only are there less people in extreme poverty but there are more
    In 1990 there were 5,327,231,041 people... https://www.populationpyramid.net/world/1990/
    In 2019 there were 7,713,468,205 people... https://www.populationpyramid.net/world/2019/

    Facts are there are 1.1 billion fewer people in poverty even though there is 44% more people!

    When a few billionaires control most things, that’s not surprising.

    There is less poverty under socialism because people keep starving to death.

    To a lot of people they should be given everything they want simply because they breath. They don't care that someone may know more. They don't care that someone may work long hours. They only care that they don't have what someone else has.

    It's hard to argue this one way or another as Capitalism isn't really practiced anywhere.

    Those still not dead haven't the internet nor telephone to participate in the poll anyway. They are the 'good-as-dead.'

    Interesting that all the socialist parts of the world feel capitalism isn't working for them yet the 5 or so prosperous, advanced western countries do (and that did NOT include any of Europe). :badgrin:

    THEY didn't pay attention in school so I have to pay.

    Sounds good...when I have no more money to pay taxes...YOU get no food stamps! And we can all starve equally!

    Yep...that ambitious, greedy, productive, law abiding capitalist white dude just keeps those subhuman darkies down...Whitey forces darkies to keep that fertility rate high while iQ, common sense and ambition stays in the shitter.

    No doubt those who are pushing socialism appreciate the right wing's abject indifference to our increasing wealth disparities.
