Default Re: Political Cartoon from '34 Chicago Trib

Therein lies the rub. The system is not beyond repair. It's not necessarily even broken, it just needs a little repair. Capitalism IS what made this country great, and it has survived many tests. This is just the next in line.

The biggest lesson to take from this cartoon is that 75 years ago Capitalism was under attack. The sytem survived and ended up even stronger for it. The post WWII boom in the US may have been the greatest period of economic expansion by a Country ever seen in history.

We can't scrap that system now. We just can't...
