  1. While I disagree with capitalism being the most efficient economic system in our country, I agree that it will not go away in the near future so as a society, we have to cooperate with the system. It’s important that if we are going to have big cooperations in control of the economy that their leaders are ethical and non-exploitative. It’s dangerous for one to hold a lot of capital when it isn’t remotely evenly distributed to the rest of society but being able to use that capital for the good of everyone else can lessen the harms of capitalism.
