You can call it whatever you want, but the reality is money flows uphill a lot faster than it flows downhill. The end result is that eventually there will be very little money at all flowing downhill. Whatever you'd like to believe, this problem is a direct result of capitalism.
I think Capitalism is an effective way to kickstart a nation's economy. It worked well for the US. The problem is it has an expiration date, as you've pointed out.
