Capitalism or Communism? Which system is best?

Report as

well capitalism is based on wealth and communism is based on equal treatment for everyone. in communism everyone gets paid the same way. so if you are doing your work at a great pace and someone else is doing terrible, they will be paid the same, then people will begin to feel that they don't have to do anything but show up to work and they will be paid. this is one reason a communist government will not last long. capitalist governments however will last much longer because you get paid based on your performance.

Capitalism has proven to be a more effective system throughout history. But on a very small scale communism works better, small as in the family unit.

In a perfect world, Communism and Socialism would be the best. But, for now Capitalism is the best.

Capitalism. Communism simply isn't possible for humans, it has failed everywhere it has been tried.

Communism is a naive idea that ignores basic human traits. It can't work. Capitalism is pretty bad, however and also has failed to remain stable, it always devolves into oligarchy due to greed (read up on the 19th century Robber Barons). Socialism is the system that seems to work best overall.

In the real world, the only feasible and maintainable system is capitalism. With little regulation it is self sustaining and allows interchangement between classes, low prices, and pay based on performance. Its use of competition to drive down prices and keep up improvements is not found in communism and that alone is enough to put it ahead of the "if it aint broke dont fix it" system that communism perpetuates.

Communism had been tried. It has not been successfully implemented. Capitalism is the best option at the moment.

Communism has always failed. Capitalism is neither stable or humane and has also failed. All countries have embraced a system of government-constrained capitalism to keep the wealthy from destroying their own countries. So socialism, in varying degrees, has worked the best overall.

Capitalism is when the markets are not controlled by teh government, so those with money can use it to create more wealth by opening factories or creatilng new services. This is fine, but experience has shown that as these people concentrate more and more wealth, there is less and less for the working class. This has happened numerous times, and is still happening in places like Brasil. Socialism comes in different flavors, but basically it lets markets work under some sort of government control to avoid the problems of capitalism. Socialism is based on the idea that government's primary job is to help people, not just the rich. So government provides some level of health care, support for the poor, education, roads, and other services that most people need, but rich people would not provide on their own. A socialist government like the United States and all of western Europe taxes the rich and middle class to provide things like Social Security, Medicare, schools, clean water, clean air, and regulates banks and the stock market to keep (most of) the crooks from ruining the financial system with their greed. When this system breaks down, like it did under President Bush, we see what happens - financial disaster. The worldwide recession is a direct result of US policies trying to strengthen capitalism and reduce the role of government in regulating markets.
