There is no such thing as capitalism. It is a term used because the fascisti had to spin because of exactly what the above article is about.
The idea that a small cliche can basically own a nation and simultaneously there can be any government that isn't fascist is a fantasy.
Unscientific Aspect #3: Economists assume that "money" is only a "medium of exchange":
"MONEY: Anything which is widely acceptable in exchange for goods, or in settling debts, not for itself but because it can be similarly passed on, has the character of money since it serves the primary function of money, i.e. a means of payment. As a means of payment money is an entity which is transferred when a payment is made; as such it acts as a medium of exchange, a function essential to any economy other than the most primitive." [p. 285, THE MIT DICTIONARY OF ECONOMICS]
But even the casual observer can see that money is social power because it "empowers" people to buy and do the things they want -- including buying and doing other people: politics.
If employers have the freedom to pay workers less "political power," then they will retain more political power for themselves. Money is, in a word, "political," and "economic efficiency" is correctly seen as a political concept designed to conserve political power for those who have it -- to make the politically powerful, even more powerful, and the politically weak, even weaker.
Our national currency provided the means for moneyed interests to capture our formal political system.
