How someone can speak on the history of capitalism and not mention the disparity in wealth that encapsulates the whole world. To not mention that capitalism is responsible for 80% of the world's wealth being owned by 5% of the world's population is unforgivable. The Great Depression of the 1930s, The Great Recession which started in 2008 which we've never recovered from... And now we find ourselves in a calamity worse than that of 1929 with the Coronavirus... And as of today over 40 million Americans losing their jobs in less than 6 months... It's amazing to me that a system like capitalism with it's miserable record can still find somebody like you (the producer of this video), someone who is willing to pick up pom poms and be it's cheerleader. So how much do they pay to be a propagandist these days?

Capitalism is not responsible for those who do not practice capitalism!! If you like another rich/poor split, try 99% v 1% which you had under kings and emperors. Capitalism began in Italy in the 14th century when Christian monks who grew grapes for wine, began REINVESTING part of their income in buying more land and growing more grapes. CAPITALISM IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PURE CONSUMPTION VERSUS REINVESTMENT. IF YOU DON'T REINVEST, YOU DON'T GROW IN WEALTH. If you dislike Capitalism so, please observe the places where it is NOT practiced: China, the former USSR, North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Haiti, essentially Mexico, much of South America and Africa.

One crucial bit iof info I'm missing here: In 1601 some Dutch people invented Fractional Reserve Banking, creating giral money out of thin air. This enabled companies to hire ship-builders and crews without which colonialism wouldn't even have started. Without getting ever deeper in debt most of the economic growth of the last 400 years would not have happened

Adam Smith also wrote that division of labour would intellectually deteriorate the majority of people to be: "As stupid as the human creature can be" It's important to emphasise that bolshevism and vanguardism aren't communist systems. Not in any Marxist sense. Roosevelt's New Deal was closer to socialism/communism than the soviet union ever was. Edit: It's also important to call out WTO for being protectionist whenever a rich nation/corporation, especially America warrants it. Changing process rights into product rights is the reason that easily produced medicine is monopolized. The impact of malaria on africa could have been severely reduced if not for the WTO.

Capitalism has gone beyond pennies and yen, it now, glaringly, identifies winners and losers. Don't have a job, don't have a Porsche, don't have a couple million dollars invested in Stock? LOSER!! However, if you have any ONE of these 'prizes', you're a quasi-winner; looked down upon by those with all of these toys; THE WINNERS. See this harsh reality in the HBO film, "Inside Job", narrated by Matt Damon.

Both socioeconomic systems described in this video (Capitalism and Communism) had the same/similar hierarchic division of power and wealth. Inevitably there always is some group at the top making sh*t decisions about how everyone else below them should sacrifice while those making the decisions don't have to. This may be a key reason for the failing of every system that has been tried so far.

Communism is work according to ability and receive according to need. It can work in small communities where all participants can see that the other participants are doing their share of the work. It has never been tried on a large scale, and probably wouldn't work in a hightech-society as there are no perks for those doing dirty/dangerous work.

Some truth in what you say. But you cannot say what should and shouldn't be produced. Plus capitalism will self adjust because it is based on the consumer so if the consumer sees something that is bad or not working for him/her they CHOOSE another path or item.

1:18 Wut... This passage is about separating faith and money making activities as money making corrupts the other. I don't think there is any evidence that this had anything to do with preventing the rise of capitalism. There was a prevalent ideology, and prevailing power structure that was anti-market.

@Mark T Tabor Wealth isn't money, money is a way of measuring wealth but wealth usually exists in the form of buildings, furniture, vehicles, produce, and services. "Capitalism" Doesn't exist, it was defined in contrast to socialism such that socialists could pretend they had an alternative. All what they are talking about boils down to is property rights and contract law. Classes are not built in, they emerge because everyone is different in their aspirations and ability.

This is very strange, its like the author was forced to concede "capitalism" works while whereever he is not forced to understand misleads "winners and..." now he couldn't say losers because thats wrong so instead he implied losers. But this is wrong, the poor today enjoy a better standard of living than the kings of old. How on earth is "winning" less than someone else "losing"? Wealth is not zero sum, I noticed he dodged this constantly throughout the video, "capitalism" is the single most effective system for generating wealth known to man.

*Christ was NOT against Capitalism* ---- In the scene from the Temple - he scourged the *MONEY-CHANGERS* - not money-lenders ----- big difference. He objected to the Temple practice - of forcing ordinary people to exchange their everyday money for special temple money - because of the claim it was 'unclean'. In practice - it meant that many of the poor could not afford to leave an offering or visit the temple without being treated as second class citizens because of the crushing exchange rate.

*M* --- The Torah commanded a yearly pilgrimage _'up to Jerusalem'_ for three festivals - Passover - Shavout, & Sukkot. Upon arrival - Jews were required to donate half a shekel to maintain the Temple. They had to exchange their 'unclean' coins for Temple shekels ( _No graven images with faces or images of other Gods were allowed_ ). It would be a stretch to call it a 'business' that the Temple Authorities owned. But it was an activity _'sanctioned'_ by them which was in keeping with the rules laid out in the Torah. Of interest - is the strong possibility that Christ also threw out the Money-Changers because they were carrying out their business WITHIN the sanctified Temple & Temple grounds -- rather than outside of the Temple Complex.
