013: Capitalism & Free-markets

In this episode, the monkeys discuss capitalism; the good, the bad, and the ugly. After a quick life hack that devolves into physics theorizing, the infinite monkeys try to figure out what capitalism is and issues that arise from this type of economic system. Is the idea of capitalism a good thing that encourages competition or a bad thing that encourages exploitation? Should large corporations be more accountable for what they sell, how they sell it, and how they obtain their goods? Do people spend beyond their means in an attempt to be happy? WTF is with these coffee prices, am I right?
