One Response to Good Capitalism Lifts People and Raises Happiness, says Doug Levy

  1. IAT Students says:

    Yes this may be true for the high society and high standard countries, but what about the capitalist countries where all of their resources are bought by international companies? Capitalism only creates more differences in status, rich and poor and knowing that man by nature is selfish, times when the middle class will rule a capitalist country is nowhere to be seen, at least not in near future.
