Transcript of Socialism

What is it?
Capitalism is the social system which exists in the majority of countries in the world. Under this system, the means for producing and distributing goods are owned by a small minority of people. We refer to this group of people as the capitalist class. The majority of people must sell their ability to work in return for a wage or salary (who we refer to as the working class.)
How is it presented in An inspector calls?
In the play, Mr. Birling represents a capitalist society. This is an economic system that is based on the private ownership of industry.

The problem with Capitalism is that it often leads to the few exploiting the many and creates a situation where those who have money have the power to stop others from sharing the wealth.

Capitalism is often part of Conservatism. Conservatives believe that people should take greater responsibility for themselves. Traditionally Conservative governments keep taxation low, in the belief that people enjoy the benefits of hard work and success. Opponents of Conservatism believe it reduces social mobility and that it benefits the rich over the poor.
Pros and cons
What is it?
The redistribution of wealth and an economically fair way of living. It makes community fairer and nothing is privately owned.
How is it presented in An inspector calls?
J.B Priestly was a socialist and one of the big questions he is presenting to the audience is "How should society be organized?"

He is offering us a choice between socialism in which the rich are compelled to share their wealth, or through capitalism where you are allowed to keep more of your money.
Pros and cons
If the goal of the society is community and harmony, then socialism is the way to go. However, in the interest of profit and money, businesses are for capitalism as it benefits them but not the greater community.
