Where capitalism has been allowed to thrive it has pulled the world along. We are in the midst of a micro-entrepreneurial revolution facilitated in large part by technology which is cheap and powerful. Please notice how technology is one of the least regulated sectors of the world economy. At least it is right now.
More people think like producers these days than probably ever before. They think more like owners than as employees. This is a very good thing for the economy if we allow the revolution to bloom.
