Capitalism has lifted people from poverty and created widespread wealth for billions of people, most notably in China. Denise Hearn argued that the so-called capitalism that exists today is the antithesis of competitive marketplaces. Monopolies and oligopolies dominate both the U.S. economy and China’s economy. The author presented a case on how industry concentration over the last 40 years in the U.S. has led to: low productivity, low business dynamism, higher consumer prices, record levels of inequality, low wages, and lost localism and diversity. Voters feel that markets are rigged, and populist politicians triumph. What can China learn from this experience? Hearn examined how the U.S. got to this state, and discuss the dangers of concentrated economic and political power.
