Using reason instead of emotion,
The next time you must answer a economic question, the main thing to remember is to use your mind instead of your emotions. The only reason some people don't believe Capitalism works , is because they are being led by their emotions. Your emotions will tell you the "compassionate" thing to do would be to pay for health care for the poor. But using your mind you see that the only way that would be possible would be to take away money from others. Which of course would lead to people no longer willing to invest their time and effort into being productive since it is going to be taken from them by the government. And when productivity ends, nobody suffers more than the poor. So you can see that emotions can destroy lives, but reason can save them.
