Zaphod passed along an old John Sutherland propaganda film extolling the virtues of capitalism and the evils of socialism. It’s my patriotic duty to post it today.

This is more about politics and economics than personal finance, and it vastly oversimplifies things (it is propaganda, after all), but it’s fun to watch from an historical perspective.

But wait! That’s not all! From 1940, here’s a short film called Your Town: A Story of America.

This film contains less anti-socialist rhetoric, but it lauds capitalism even more loudly than the first!

Have a safe and happy Independence Day. I’ll see you on Thursday!
