honestly, what alternative do you want? communism failed, socialism sucks and we can't just run around acting like autonomous hippies - capitalism seems pretty ok

Before capitalism succeeded, it also failed several times, being taken over by feudalism again. With communism and socialism we are seeing the same phenomenon happening: several experiments, some work more than others, but there is still no definitive way for the success of these regimes. Perhaps China will be an example in the future of a socialism that worked, but only time will tell.

Bro, China is not pure socialism. I live in Denmark, and the income tax rate and VAT rate in Denmark is way higher than in fx China. In Denmark tax and VAT money goes to shit like schools (which are underfunded), hospitals (nurses claim they are underfunded and too stressed as they have to work mulitple around the clock shifts, also waiting time on our hospitals is crazy high), police (who won't show up if you've been mugged or raped, but will happily arrest you if you smoke weed or something like that) and roads (man i dont even want to begin...) I pay 40% tax of my income every month + an additional 8% work market contribution (literally just an extra tax, but w/e), and if what I get in return for that money is fucking garbage; it's literally the exact same scenario as the Soviet Union. Private providers of services will always beat socialist services, because if their service sucks they go under and can't compete against their rival service providers. I had a discussion about China and their growing middle class a few years ago with a professor in political science and economics, and he had a better term for their political ideology because it is really not socialism but i forgot what he called it. China is authoritarian asf but it's almost a free market economy with growing middle class and upper class.

basically what i believed Trump got right on Corona is he gave the state leaders the say on how they run their own policy this makes sense in a massive country like the US like there is no reason why the same policy for Newyork and California should be adopted by Wyoming or Vermont he also despite what people will tell you got all the states the ventilators and masks they asked for but you know they blame trump cause it's convenient it also distracts you from Newyork Governor Andrew Cuomo who had a terrible idea of any nursing home who has a resident get corona is forced to take them back this caused Corona to spread like wildfire in Newyork Nursing homes and now over 34,000 people are dead there alone if Newyork was a country they would rank 14th in deaths just one state of America but you know it's Trumps fault somehow

Capitalism works if labor is valuable and somewhat scarce. But, most real jobs have been automated away a decade ago and the few real jobs are slowly getting there. Lots of Americans just work as middle men or in some other bullshit job that doesn't actually produce anything.

I've looked into lots of economic theories on why the middle class is dying in American and whether certain economic/monetary policies can save it. At the end of the day, from my own conclusions, it all comes down to automation and outsourcing. Changing monetary/economic policies is a temporary fix. It won't matter if robots take 75% of the jobs in the economy.

Fiat money destroys real savings, punishes creditors and promotes debt. And the elites/bankers/governments are the biggest debtors around. Also it stimulates speculation that sucks capital from real productive purposes, which in the USA destroyed its productive industrial base in favor of consumerism, speculation and services.
