It is now 100 years since the October Revolution and although the Soviet Union has since ceased to exist questions of capitalism and socialism remain as relevant today as they were all those years ago. The last financial crisis was the worst since the Great Depression. Poverty, hunger, homelessness and unemployment are still huge problems which capitalism is seemingly incapable of solving.

Stossel: Socialism Fails Every Time

In America, socialism is hot again. Democratic socialism is your kids public school. It’s our interstate highway system. It’s the researchers and scientists paid with our taxes.

Dead Wrong® with Johan Norberg – Sweden: Socialism or Free Markets?
