Talk to your kids about capitalism, before someone else does

Signs that your teen might be involved with capitalism:
- Wears suits and/or khakis
- Blames poor people for being poor
- Pays their employees less than they are worth
- Receives bonuses after laying off workers
- Says that charity is the solution to income inequality

A couple people got mad at this lol I’m not even being inflammatory people this is literally how it works

I don’t really care if you think capitalism is great or not. But at least know how it works

You’ve got a couple options when it comes to turning a profit:
- Underpay workers
- Overvalue the product
- Both

Modern capitalism does both (alongside a subset of the middle class that gets dramatically overpaid, such as programmers, and gratuitous expenditures such as salary bonuses). Whichever way you slice it, though, you get inflation and increasing inequality.

If you consider yourself a capitalist, but think rising inequality is a bug rather than a feature, you don’t actually understand capitalism (or are pretending not to, for PR).

@red_priest every ted talk ever: “what if we lie about the goal of capitalism”
