Capitalism vs. Socialism Town Hall Discussion, Plus Manufactured Housing Equities Updates

CNNmone5.20.2019ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsThere are stock watchers that think that the current runoff has hit bottom today.  Time will tell.  But there is a lot of red on the major markets and on manufactured home connected stocks this evening.  Not huge drops, but a slide, nevertheless.  That said, our feature tonight is the antithesis, in some ways, of the stock market.  It’s a townhall style discussion and debate of socialism vs. capitalism. As a recent survey suggests that as many as 47 percent of Americans would vote for a ‘qualified’ socialist candidate, let’s dive in, further below.

If you’re new, already hooked on our new spotlight feature – or are ready to get the MH professional fever – our headline report is found further belowafter the newsmaker bullets and major indexes closing tickers.

The evolving Daily Business News market report sets the manufactured home industry’s stocks in the broader context of the overall markets.  Headlines – at home and abroad – often move the markets.  So, this is an example of “News through the lens of manufactured homes, and factory-built housing.” ©

Part of this unique evening feature provides headlines – from both sides of the left-right media divide – which saves busy readers time, while underscoring topics that may be moving investors, which in turn move the markets.

Readers say this is also a useful quick-review tool that saves researchers time in getting a handle of the manufactured housing industry, through the lens of publicly-traded stocks connected with the manufactured home industry.

This is an exclusive evening or nightly example of MH “Industry News, Tips and Views, Pros Can Use.” © It is fascinating to see just how similar, and different, these two lists of headlines can be.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –



As a disclosure we are believers in ethical free enterprise, but there are millions today who are buying into socialism.  There is no easy way to engage a group when there is no back-and-forth discussion.

So, this video gives 2 advocates for socialism and two for capitalism, moderated by Charles Payne of Fox Business, who tilts towards business.

There are clever arguments on either side.

One has to ignore the experiences of Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, or the 70 years of failure in the former Soviet Union to buy into socialism.  The author taking the socialist view makes the case that China is an example of a socialist economy.  Really?  Wasn’t that western capital that raced into China decades ago that boosted their economy?

There are several Democratic candidates who have embraced a more leftist view, with Joe Biden among those who are trying to appease the left, while remaining more centrist sounding.  The point is that this will be a debate in the next 18 months, in the run-up to 2020.  Buckle up.

At least during the first part of this town hall, the kind of sobering facts linked below were not cited.  If you have a socialist in the office, why not encourage them to read up?  Be willing to answer their questions.

The closing point, before linking some prior reports on this topic is this.  A common concern among those who ‘buy into’ socialism is the uber-rich, think Warren Buffett.  Check out the conquest capitalism topic, linked below and the one that follows it if you haven’t already.   Its important to make the distinction between capitalism and free enterprise.
