    that capitalism cannot last, at least the kind we are suffering from now that depends on continual growth of sales and profits. We are fast running out of natural resources to build products to sell to the masses that that do not have the means to buy the products they are making.
    I haven't bought a new vehicle since 1979, and am driving the "new to me" 1987 Volvo 245 that I bought in 2000, not because I can't afford a brand spanking new car, it's because I don't need one.
    During this time I have bought a few new mac computers and tablets though, so I suppose I am helping to keep capitalism going for awhile longer.

      The Apple commercial hailing "engineered in the USA" is infuriating--they are made in Asia--assembled in Asia.  Also, they hide $100 billion overseas--avoiding US taxes--they are everything destroying capitalism.

      Under capitalism, man exploits man. Under communism, it's just the opposite. John Kenneth Galbraith .
