Capitalism Kills

Every country on earth now has a hybrid system of government combining free market and socialist principles.

Free markets allow capitalism and socialism provides government help for those with need.

This explains why India has launched an effort to provide affordable computer tablets to citizens.

$2,000 open heart surgery? Preposterous. The country must have people concerned about health and welfare of citizens instead of raining down dollars on corporations.

[NEW DELHI — India is launching a cheap tablet computer it says will deliver modern technology to help lift villagers out of poverty.

The computer, called Aakash, or "sky" in Hindi, is the latest in a series of cheap Indian innovations that include a 100,000 rupee ($2,040) Nano car, a 750 rupee ($15) water purifier and $2,000 open-heart surgery.

Government subsidies promise a $35 price tag for students and teachers, with a regular retail price of about $45 from manufacturer Datawind.] emphasis added
