I didn't say capitalism was invented in the US, or didn't mean to, anyway.The tenets of the system may have originated elsewhere but it was adopted and flourished in America in a very particular way. Hell, I don't even know if it was done consciously. American capitalism is, in my opinion, the most highly evolved form we've got currently, and stronger than anything that's come before. You have to look at how its tenets were uniquely suited to the development and evolution of America and how it grew here.I‘m not following you.
Capitalism began life in Europe, roughly following the French Revolution, and was first put into writing by Scottish economist Adam Smith in the mid to late 1700s. But even that wasn’t a revolution; it built upon existing systems.
Can you elaborate on this (either here or in a different thread)?
