By the way, I am actually a socialist. Just not the kind that shifts resources from most productive to least productive, pretending to do good, while actually causing harm. True socialism seeks greatest good for all.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) June 16, 2018

He probably thinks socialism is occasionally giving some crumbs to a homeless person.

Elon Musk is definately a capitalist, “the kind that shifts resources from most productive to least productive, pretending to do good, while actually causing harm.”

Rich people are all socialists, specially if their investments fail It’s only the poor people who are punished with capitalism

i think the primary difference would be that she could argue “we get to feed more people” instead of “trust me, they’ll buy it up and i’ll return your money and more. oh. you need me to cut corners? ok. from now on, i’m paying my workers minimum wage and we’re losing dental”

My point was that old fashioned capitalism incentivizes competition and greed. Capitalism will make it harder to buy her tractor just to help feed people, unless she can show that she can also make significant money off it.

to address it at a human level is to ignore the way capitalism encourages poor behavior. a better deal to a socialist might mean someone can feed more people with the same tractor, so the original farmer may be passed by. to a capitalist, a better deal is a greater fiscal return on giving capital for a tractor, even if the original farmer could better feed their community

Maybe, but at least you could set up a government in a democratic way with citizen oversight and at least this is at least considered bad whereas greed and exploitation under capitalism is seen as “good business” and actually encouraged.
