Whatever disability your brother is on, it is because of the wealth which capitalism creates which supports whatever services your brother receives.This is pure straw. My argument was not that my income has any effect on his, or that capitalism created his problems. I was refuting your claim that capitalism benefits all. It benefits only those with capital.
Fair enough. The government of Mexico has made great strides toward capitalism over the past decades or so.And the other poster was just as incorrect in saying so.
"Mexico has a free market economy in the trillion dollar class. It contains a mixture of modern and outmoded industry and agriculture, increasingly dominated by the private sector. Recent administrations have expanded competition in seaports, railroads, telecommunications, electricity generation, natural gas distribution, and airports. Per capita income is one-fourth that of the US; income distribution remains highly unequal. Trade with the US and Canada has tripled since the implementation of NAFTA in 1994. Mexico has 12 free trade agreements with over 40 countries including, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, the European Free Trade Area, and Japan, putting more than 90% of trade under free trade agreements."

By creating wealth.
