Sure, the capitalists killed capitalism, and maybe socialism is better or maybe not. Here are some ideas to save capitalism from itself, while we ponder the socialist-capitalist dichotomy.
Harvard's MBA program, capitalism's incubator, should offer a course on "Hey, wait, don't kill capitalism!" Heck, make it a whole new graduate program.
Past graduates have done their best to destroy the system: George Bush and the best and brightest on Wall Street. Time for a change, here at Harvard!
Topics: Karl Marx on how capitalists will sell the rope with which to hang themselves--required three-credit course.
Signs that the system is going down:
20-somethings from Yale making $30 million a year on Wall Street (only a year after graduating!)--three credits.
Larry Summers saying unions are bad for employment. (Taught by Larry Summers!)--three credits
Revolving door from the government to Wall Street and back again. ($10K upfront fee, three credits)
George Bush brought down three firms and several countries, including his own. Find out how he did it, and then develop plans for a healthier alternative. Three credits.
