Pavel Constantin, «Politicalcartoons.com»

«Can capitalism survive? No, I do not think it can. The thesis I shall endeavor to establish is that the actual and prospective performance of the capitalist system is such as to negative the idea of its breaking down under the weight of economic failure, but that its very success undermines the social institutions which protect it, and inevitably creates conditions in which it will not be able to live and which strongly point to socialism as the heir apparent.»

Joseph A. Schumpeter, in «Capitalism, Socialism, and Democracy» (1942)

No Washington Post, Robert J. Samuelson escreve «American Capitalism Besieged»:

The story of American capitalism is, among other things, a love-hate relationship. We go through cycles of self-congratulation, revulsion and revision. Just when the latest onset of revulsion and revision began is unclear. Was it when Lehman Brothers collapsed? Or when General Motors pleaded for federal subsidies? Or now, when AIG’s bonuses stir outrage? No matter. Capitalism is under siege, its future unclear.
