I'm sure hoping this is a sarcastic tongue in cheek comment.
But.. Capitalism does work and it's the reason we have crazy forefront of technology and industry.
It depends upon your definition of capitalism.
The US's biggest period of economic windfall came after World War II and into the 1960s. We were a much more socialist company then than we are now.
And much of the technology and industry that we celebrate came from either government labs, or government investment. That's a fairly socialist idea.
The needle has ticked way too far towards pure capitalism, and too far away from the mix we had back in the 50s and 60s.
