There exist alternatives to global capitalism. Democracy and Freedom.

Why should we act?
2014: 2.325 millionaires. Oxfam says the richest % of people will own more than 50% of capital in near future.

What goes wrong?
Moral, ethical and functional dimensions of capitalism criticism. (

What are the alternatives?
A fair distribution => finding a symmetry between work, production means and capital employed. One option is to become an economic democracy, changing power structures. (see f.e. Karl Marx, G. A. Cohen, David Schweikert, Titus Stahl, Philippe Van Parijs)
