Capitalism - A Love Story

How financially literate do you think most Americans are? What kinds of attitudes about wealth drive people to take high-risk loans or become involved in get rich quick schemes? Who should take or share the responsibility for the economic crisis?

Moore lauds the governments of Japan, Germany and Italy (among others) for providing what he feels are basic economic rights? What issues do these countries face that Moore does not include in his documentary?

Moore addresses many of the negative aspects of capitalism. What are the positive (if any) features of it? Is capitalism really evil? Is socialism really an ideal solution? How does greed and corruption play into capitalism? Can they have the same impact on socialism, communism and dictatorships? What would you propose as a solution for the economy?
