Is Capitalism Really THAT Bad?

From the Freakanomics Blog:

James McWilliams, [a] historian at Texas State University-San Marcos  was driving in Austin when he passed a (presumably) homeless man holding up this sign:

McWilliams liked the sign so much that he offered the man $10 for it. “Evidently,” McWilliams says, “more than his labor was for sale.” The sign now hangs in McWilliams’s office. Perhaps capitalism doesn’t suck as much as the man thought.

Indeed. Maybe someone should discuss the benefits of capitalism with Michael Moore, too.
