Sorry but history speaks very clearly. Market tested innovation is the key to general prosperity. You can call it capitalism, but the accumulation of capital is not the key driver. The key driver is innovation that has to compete in the market place with large rewards going to the innovators that successfully please consumers.
Cool unsupported opinion. Just because the original author says something doesn’t make it true, nor does it become true when you come and back him up with more unsubstantiated opinion to add to his own. The onus is on you guys to prove the veracity of your claims, which neither you nor he has done. You have again failed to demonstrate causation, and invoking “history speaks very clearly” doesn’t let off the hook.
You’re welcome to hold your opinions for whatever reason you want to believe them, but as arguments for the causes of innovation both in the past and present, they don’t adhere to the standards of logic.
