Why capitalism can't sort out the worlds problems - a basic guide

Playing tracks by

Andrew.

Part of the 'Introductions to basic anarchism series' "What we will look at in this business is the way the finances are arranged. And in particular, who controls them. The workers who do not own anything do the majority of the work and get paid by the owner/boss. Also paid by the owner is a relatively fixed sum for maintenance of machinery, electricity and gas bills, rents, taxes, etc.

The bosses who own everything and do at most a small fraction of the work reward themselves out of what is left over. This means that they get more for themselves if they pay out less in other expenses. The main expense that the owners can lessen is the wages and working conditions of the workers, so these are attacked most."

very good and straightforward precis of why capitalism doesn't work for workers... and not a single dead Russian or German cited.
