Elizabeth Warren: "I love capitalism!"

Here's a link in case the video doesn't work.

Here again it would be interesting to have a feminist perspective. I have to confess I'm not hearing a lot of "I love socialism" anywhere around these days. But "I love capitalism," red in tooth and claw?

To be "Serious" and taken seriously, you still have to be Mr or Ms Capitalism. That's the way it is. Doesn't have to be, but it is.

Personally, I think most countries besides the US are making steps toward reconciling the advantages of capitalism AND socialism. The US is ripe to have a serious debate on this, but both sides, Dem/GOP (Prog/conservative), have a vested interest in making the debate absurd.

Every time I hear this woman my admiration for her increases. I don't have to agree with every tot and tittle of her worldview. I am just glad that her views have the net effect of supporting the consumer/taxpayer, from back in the days of her testimony on the bankruptcy bill to her present role as TARP Oversight Board Chair.

And being a great communicator is one of her chief virtues, e.g., "contract law and bankruptcy--the alpha and omega of capitalism".

I've just emailed the link to several friends.

but we're getting there. (Link is to the Rasmussen poll showing that 53% think capitalism is better than socialism, with a close-to-even split among the under-30 crowd.)
