Re: Scientist declares “Earth is F**ked" --Discuss?!
Some here act like Capitalism and Socialism are mutually exclusive. It should be obvious that a hybrid system of the two is most desirable. Let business do what it does well in producing consumer goods and let government run the infrastructure. Neither system has all the answers on their own. Sadly too many people here in the US have had the word Socialism pounded into their heads as some horrible oppressive evil all the while not having a clue as to what it actually is.
In America, you don't need to impress anyone to start a business.
You do, if you need a loan to get that business started. And though one doesn't need billions to start a business as you accurately said above. You forgot to mention that most small businesses fail.
