If you ask an economist about the difference between capitalism and socialism, youll probably get a boring answer about the size of government, the impact on incentives, and the power of the state.
Or maybe youll get a nit-picking answer, sort of like when I explained that Obama technically isnt a socialist.
Thats why its sometimes best to use simple, common-sense analogies.
Two years ago, I used two cows to explain the differences between various economic systems.
But this image may be an ever more succinct way to showing the difference between capitalism and socialism.
Or, if you prefer stories, this updated version of the fable of the ant and the grasshopper makes the same point.
And heres the PC version of the Little Red Hen.
Perfect. I can’t wait to show it to my high school Sunday School class
Fantastic, thanks for posting!
I think the following is a more likely ending for this fantastic tale:
And the barnyard animals, in their righteous indignation at the greed of the hen, attacked and killed her and scooped up the bread.
They then made her into CHICKEN SOUP, into which they dunked the bread she had made and they had confiscated. It was truly the best couple of meals they ever had and one of the healthiest as everyone knows how healthy chicken soup is.
As the last of the meal was consumed, the cow glanced over to the pig and asked, “What do we eat next Thursday?”
Startled, each animal looked at the other in fear.
