OMG. People are still discussing this like it's some new dis? Get over it. It was an old joke in the 1970s. Seriously.

@Burton_Ian: I remember you... and you have my (begrudged) respect!

But here I beg to differ:
The given examples of "Venture Capitalism" and both Greek and Iraqi Corporations are also "narratives". So I think my examples "fit the bill" as it were...

Besides, mine are both funny and accurate! Both of them! There is a (subtle) difference between socialism and communism... but in the "real world" they're often interchangeable... or else they throw you into prison and you die...
(See how I tied that all together? Nice eh?)

5cats: I would say that there is a flaw in your simile -- you were writing a narrative rather than in what way socialism and communism are like a farmer with two cows. Quite frankly, I'm not really sure why communism was even included in this list, as it is a political, and not economic,form of policy, i.e. a gov`t can be politically communist but economic capitalistic, socialistic, or somewhere between.
I will give you credit -- because of this reason, your communism example is in no way related to any of the information pertinent to the infograph.

@OldOllie: Thank you!

@pfkdxius: If you found a flaw or error? Please point it out! Otherwise don't rub my fur the wrong way...

@Gerry1: Almost (but not quite!) certain that`s shopped...

@Geogypsy: To repeat: I like the post! That it allows "further discussion" is a bonus!
