World wide drop in support for free market system

Thursday, April 17th, 2008

Pollsters report a world wide drop in support for the free market system.

This was apparent in the US presidential party primary, where the most anticapitalist candidate of each party won or appears to be winning his party’s nomination.  Recently in Nepal, Maoists won democratically, an almost unprecedented event for communists.

I have no idea what is causing this problem.  Perhaps the problem is that with the collapse of communism, the constant reminder of how dreadful the alternative to capitalism is has gone away.
