Capitalism Isn’t Only for Capitalists

June 1, 2018

Capitalism is a top trending search term. What does it actually mean? Is it an economic system run by capitalists or swayed by consumers? Does it benefit capital at the expense of labor or is it responsible for the rising living standards or workers in industrialized countries? The FEEcast crew discusses this much maligned and much misunderstood term.
