Progressive in the 21st century?

I don't want to talk about Occupy Wallstreet

Many people share the mood

we know what we are against, but not what we are in favor of

Capitalism itself

IS the problem

the system is unfair

consumer society leaves everything to the commodity

Makes our TV programs worse

On the other hand...

everyone knows that capitalism has won


post war social democrats in Europe

it's possible to change a not-good-enough system to a better system

Citizens have it in their hands to make a better society

Also a mentality


MLK didn't say

I have a nightmare

He said I have a dream!

The domino effect

there is a positive effect

more stable economic development

a society that shares it's prosperity with it's people functions better as a whole

The trickle down effect is the brother to Yeti (Bigfoot)

Prosperity for everyone

stimulates the economy

If all people live in materially secure postions

all can contribute to overall prosperity

If citizens feel that things aren't fair

they engage less

being underprivileged is hereditary

a waste, they can not contribute

Some of the problems we see in south Europe

is a result of wage dumping in Germany and Austria

The top 1% of wage earners

consume 20% of all wages

People are no cash machines

Economic fairness triggers a series of win/win effects

An economy is dynamic

Western societies show that capitalism is evil

things aren't that simple

the market economy can be made more just

Good Capitalism
