TIME is promoting one of its recently-published pieces about how we can have “a better economy” if only we will “reimagine capitalism.” It sounds a lot like Joe Biden’s stated plan to reimagine the oil industry.
A better economy is possible. But we need to reimagine capitalism to do it https://t.co/0mKGaYgIWA

If the economy does well, they will say it is successful despite capitalism. If the economy struggles, they will say it is because of capitalism.
Reimagined capitalism has never been tried before. https://t.co/kF9ejso7sO

Capitalism is a reimagining of the many economic and governmental failures that preceded it.
Reimagine capitalism. By which he means we need to imagine complete government control of the economy. https://t.co/WJbfhbTvA9

Capitalism is resource allocation via freedom and choice, supported by protection of property rights. There is no re-imagining that.
What we need is the Govt to stop interfering in the free markets and have everyone wrongly label that “capitalism”. https://t.co/SVYzsg2Qnz

No. We. Don’t.
Instead, we must reject cronyism, corporatism AND government intrusion in small business and independent contracting work. That’s how you unlock people’s potential and uplift individuals from poverty. https://t.co/9rRW6o9amZ

The U.S. became the most prosperous nation on earth because its founders imagined the human ingenuity, creativity and innovation that could be unleashed in a system of government in which entrepreneurship, enterprising and capitalizing were less restricted.
