Ideally, the moderate Democrats and moderate Republicans would get together and come up with something

The ACA is already based on moderate ideas. It's mostly based on a Heritage Foundation paper, a right-wing think-tank. The far left wanted single payer (similar to what other industrialized countries have).

It just needs some tuning due to mistakes and GOP budget bullet holes. Let's hope moderates can do that much.

Comment Capitalism has made similar mistakes (Score 1) 89

Capitalism made the same mistake when Ireland relied too heavily on potatoes because they grew so well and were profitable ... until they all got sick.

Lesson: don't put all your economy in one basket, whether you are commies, socialists, capitalists, or some mix.

Home market, maybe, but both Xerox and IBM tried to sell low-end business computers (without much luck, at least at first), in the part because the micro upstarts were undercutting them on price. Thus, they did see a market for desktop biz and education computers.

And there is some evidence IBM's anti-trust lawsuits affected its behavior concerning how it competed in desktops.
