<span>Capitalism biggest advantage is the trial and error process. It leads to a good body of experience that can help make good decisions. The down side – we won’t get that experience without errors along the way. And that is where many economies in the western world are right now. In the ‘getting out of the error’ phase. Big and nasty error this time! <span> </span></span>

But, DD, true as it may be, it doesn't have much to do with that poster...

<span>Yes it does, because this poster makes a distinction between government and capitalism. According to this poster the two are either opposites, rivals or completely separated from one another. Capitalism is a market philosophy; any government can adopt it or dump it. If a government adopts capitalism, and makes mistakes then it is both their fault. The core problem with today’s capitalism is that it developed utopian expectation of itself. Marxism was utopian, capitalism in its original form wasn’t.</span>

There always is a distinction between the social structure and the government, and there is much truth in that t-shirt text: sometimes problem could be caused by the government and sometimes by the cap./comm/feod.

I don't  disagree with what you say, only trying to defend the text ;)
