I've demonstrated that capitalists do more than just give money. You're just repeating the same point.
People already decide what is better by purchasing the better products. This allows other capitalists to know what the people want and they have an incentive to provide that thing instead of the thing they don't want. This doesn't apply in a communist society, the markets will be flooded with products no-one wants.
In other words, there's no incentive to use resources efficiently.
This sentence does not make sense. I don't know what you're trying to say.
So that's something that I, as a capitalist, have to do.
They're not giving money to me. I'm giving money to them. It's not the same.
Are you going to pretend that my hypothetical pen company is the only company in the entire world?
The alternative is that I don't buy the resources and the third-world worker starves to death. Is that what you want?
Also, this is a third-world worker, this is a slave. There is a difference.
Yes but I have to convince the delivery-person to deliver my packages instead of another company's package.
I'm oppressing people because they're buying my pens?
The workers have already been paid for their labor. They will have to find a new source of income, but I have to pay the debts of my failed business.
Sure, just badly.
Yeah that's never going to be a thing.
And that's why communism is terrible. Because the market is everyone, and the needs of the market are the needs of everybody. You cannot improve society by imparing the free market.
Free market is the opposite of correct allocation of resources? Please explain.
Countries don't sell things. People sell things. And if those people would have been better off if they had not sold their resources then they would not have sold them.
Every single interaction in a free market benefits both parties, or the interaction would not have happened.
This is patently and obviously false.
And you can't improve yourself or society in a free market? Nonsense.
We buy cloth from china because there is a larger demand for cloth here. That means people want cloth here more than the people in china. This is how the free market allocates resource. In the free market, resources will always go to where they are most demanded.
You said they would be motivated to do better work if there is no consequence to them not doing work. This is nonsense.
what exactly do you mean by this?
If people want to give things away that's fine. But the builder of a house owns the house. A hat maker owns his hats, a shirt maker owns his shirts, etc. If you want to take away the product of their labor you have to have their permission. Otherwise, you are a heinous thief and have literally enslaved the workers.
Furthermore, without the free market it is impossible to tell how many houses, shirts or hats to make. There is nothing to prevent a worker from accidentally sucking resources to make ten thousand shirts that nobody wants, while the hat maker doesn't have enough cloth to fill the demand. You can not allocate resources effectively without the free market.
