Kek. If capitalism is so evilz, how come even china has to play by capitalist rules to compete in the modern economy?

Capitalism is likely a transitory system, like feudalism before it

You are forgetting the part where companies try to maximize profit obsessively to the point of starting cutting stuff and lowering standards very slowly so they wont be noticed.

supply, demand, product elasticity.

~It would take a GLOBAL market downwards quality shift for people to not care about it. And guess what, such things are both elicit and counteracted by upwards quality shifts and exists in every market EVER.

case in point: The Roman empire fell because as sudden as the drop in quality in the gold coin being cast with cheap(er) copper, people's perceived elasticity to the value of that commodity made them both drop the currency (as it was perceived unvaluable and unwanted) and withhold from circulation "pure gold" coins which had a lot more value to them.

Bear in mind this transition from pure gold into copper-cast took some decades, but ultimately hurt everyone. they ran out of gold, so it's not like they had a choice, but this still happened

So, not only is your post the least valuable to this conversation, it is also the most inflammatory which inherently brings down the level of the ENTIRE thread closer to zero value.

Please reconsider acting like that in the future, Brandy. You're a sport, but not being so flamboyantly base in the future could win you friends.

Anonymous 09/03/2015 (Thu) 20:31:35 No. 256
Oh, and what happened was not only did nobody want the cheaper coins, they went out of their way to acquire and hold on to foreign currency of higher value.

Capitalism is the purest and longest running form of market interaction there is. When minimally regulated, that is.

Anonymous 09/03/2015 (Thu) 20:34:23 No. 257
so is capitalist , and everything, I suppose?

The best we can do is make blanket statements.

I means there's a significant range that can be described using 'socialist', from the Marxist states of the USSR, Maoist China and Jugoslavia to leftist-pluralist states like Sweden and Norway.

>le let me laugh at ur aeg meem

huh? Everyone knows all markets converge towards bigger regulation. Can you at least attempt to communicate in a level more adequate to the capacities of a grown man?

Anonymous 09/03/2015 (Thu) 21:34:06 No. 262
Ok. Expand on what you mean by 'converge towards'

Anonymous 09/03/2015 (Thu) 21:39:03 No. 263
If you consider the evolution of any given market as a line in a 3-D space where the vertical axis is "regulation" , X is "time" and Y is anything you want to analyze, pretty much all lines will evolve towards more legislation.

Like labour: It started being un-regulated (and having pure slavery) to having indentured servitude introduced (where only enemies could be made into slaves and normal citizens would form contracts of servitude to pay debts) and now there's countries/places (like EUrope) where signing away your rights is completely illegal.

You've traveled from unrestricted acess to "forced labour" to a place where labour chooses where to work, but the employer basically chooses how much he pays (since there's so much labour available)

Anonymous 09/03/2015 (Thu) 21:40:21 No. 264
So what does that have to do with your earlier point that less regulation is better for the market?

Anonymous 09/03/2015 (Thu) 21:43:15 No. 265
It's not that "less regulation is better. Period.".

Like Milton Freidman realized about taxes, the state's income relative to taxes (from 0- to - 100%) is bell-shaped.

He still defended that the "optimal point" of biggest possible state income was not the "optimal tax level". For income loss by lowering taxes meant more market vitality.

Are you drunk? Friedman's point, while accurate, isn't really exactly relevant to my question. I'm not entirely sure what your point even is.

I'm not even sure you need a synonym for "converge towards" either, anon.

anyways, point was: you can only devalue your product so much. Past a certain line (how much farther to either side, exactly, is determined by elasticity) the consumer's desire to pay for it tanks (again, according to elasticity).

It happened to Roman gold coins, it happens when "companies (…) start(…) lowering standards".

This is what was being discussed originally and the original context is where you should look for the answer to your question.

>things can be vague to others
It's one thing to ask something politely, it's another to go full "RREEEE LET'S LASH OUT AT NORMIES! EXTERMINATE! REPORT! SHITPOST AS HARD AS POSSIBLE!" - And still expect a serious answer. You just weren't even trying to be reasonable.

On top of all that, you were being picky on what, a synonym?

>calls out frog posting
