    An intersting, if limited discussion from the BBC.

    It states that you can contribute to it using a hashtag, being a bit of a computer dinosaur, could someone explain how that is and how I access to the debate?

    I see, however I’m not keen on joining the twitterarti, I think I’d prefer to miss the delights of that particular medium (medium can be defined as not well done) so I’ll prefer to be rare and not join

    To tell the truth, I didn’t think it was any good. At no point was capitalism defined, though the assumption by all four of them seems to have been that it was production for private profit. I suppose it might have some use as showing what some politically interested young people today think about “capitalism”, and the fact that the word is now part of the standard political vocabulary gives us a chance to say what we mean by it and what we think is the alternative to it.
