If we are defining the words in here, can you call China socialist? Can you call North Korea communist? Can you call most European countries capitalist? No, you cannot.

That's a discussion way too nuanced for this forum.  People like Robert western countries like capitalist hell and china like communist heaven and nothing in between.

The fact is that capitalism is a pilar of pretty much all of the west. But so is socialism in the sense of actually providing welfare for citizens.

Most countries are mixed economies with more or less free markets.

On the whole my experience of Finland, or Suomi as they like to be called, has been a pleasant one. Nice people, mad drivers, and heavy drinkers. But very well educated and informed. Why this newcomer is determined to spoil that impression, I cannot imagine.
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

I didn't say Germany nationalized private companies. However, they operated under tight government ...

They had to operate under extreme financial controls to save the economy. The Weimar Republic economy had collapsed and inflation was rampant, people suffered in their millions. Those measures stemmed the decline and ushered in progress that has been the envy of the world since. In a short time Germany leapt twenty or thirty years ahead of its competitors in most fields.

I see after I went to bed seneca dropped his ghost ID and started spouting off in this thread using its own ID.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
