I don't say capitalism is perfect - far from it.
But I'm from Romania and during communism, we had all those things here that H.G. Wells thought can fix things. And while all people where employed (quite forcefully in some cases because having a job was mandatory) and had enough money, we had hardly anything to buy because for one, the system was so corrupt it was eating itself by aggrandizing all its accomplishments and thus exporting most goods leaving its citizen in need and second, we didn't import much and what was imported usually got to the people in power first, to their relatives and friends second and then, whatever little scraps remained, was given to the population, scraps that were infinitesimally less than needed.
Add to that the political policing and you have one of the worst societies you want to live in.

So I can say for sure, speaking from the future of H.G Wells, that he was not a visionary and what he propose risks to ruin a country, not save it.

And to be fair to him, the company and banking system we're living in will ruin us too eventually.
Unfortunately, we're yet to find a system that balances private property and business with public property and business that will dance the thin line of social equilibrium. And its mostly because of the human factor. Lets never forget that "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely".

#5 well said Paperman. Balance is the key and it's unfortunate that as great as our system is it's difficult when both sides are crooks! And by both sides I mean business and politicians.
