Audrey Hill Posted over 4 years ago How can we empower kids to reshape the education system? *A TEDActive Education Project Question* Poor students = poor schools. It's not government that is the reason why poor students have less access. Belief that capitalism in control will result in a better product and more satisfaction is one that must (in the current climate) be held without supporting evidence. Again, I come back to the health care industry. But I might as well look at the way in which capitalism undermines communities. It used to be that recession was consistent with a depressed stockmarket, decline in consumer confidence, and a failing job market. Now, we have a thriving stockmarket, a failing job market, failing real estate market and decline in consuumer confidence. All institutions whether profit seeking or public tend toward corruption over time. Communism suffers from lack of initiative, but capitalism suffers from a lack of conscience. Capitalism supports capitalism, not communities, not education, not better products, not health care. It is inherently disinterested in being a driving force for anything but profit. It serves itself even at the expense of the host.
