Capitalism as an economic policy is founded on the ideals of competition created by private ownership of goods and private production of goods.
Socialism is the distribution of shared or public resources based created by public production.
In the US, there is a combination of both systems which are constantly at odds with one another. Taxes are, of course, the issue but what if the government projects were required to operate as private businesses do?
Take for instance the water company. Where I live, I pay the city for service. I also pay the city for garbage collection and public transportation. What if we could run these projects as for profit - and share the profits back to residents in the form of tax breaks?
