@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.
