The Washington Post said:

Beneath all the folderol about job creation and destruction at Bain Capital or President Obama’s alleged war against success and free enterprise, there’s actually a legitimate debate to be had about what kind of capitalism we want in the United States.

There are also all sorts of mix-ins and swirls that add to the variety. And while there is a natural instinct to arrange these different forms of capitalism along a left-right axis, that is hardly the most interesting way to think about them.

interesting. I suspect we'll continue to have all of these types of capitalism running through America for a long time. It would be interesting if the author had somehow tried to quanitfy this.
