      @Michael S Are you talking serios? Did you know that corruption is even worst in communism right? The simple fact of being communist make you a criminal. If you want to help somebody the best way is giving a rod (capital) no a fish (allowance)... Then that person will put a company of fish, sushi restaurants will buy him, and he will use more rods of the fabric of rods, and he will buy boats in the store of boats that was bought in the company that make boats, he probably gonna need help so he's going to hire fishermen, and people will invest on his company so imagine all the franchaises that are going to appear... Well just imagine the jobs that were created with this example. That is how we can help people in the free market system: investing in new industries, creating companies, atracting companies, helping others to growth. The key is not allowance the poor, the key is make the poor growth.

      What i understood was: Invest in a industry for make more people researching on it, it will make more development, cause there's more companies and it will make more jobs and increases the prosperity for those who are poor. Increasing the consumer's quality of life, so that make it profitable to invest in new industries. Stop using your money on fundations for Africa... It is Invest and innovate.

    I think it's true about "the more people are well-off, the better your own life is" Aside from the innovation mentioned, there will be less robbing or theft crime because people are overall more satisfied And people will be less salty and less judgemental towards others wealth So, people really shouldn't complain much when people who work in lower education job wants a higher pay

    but... the earth and our resources are still limited. We're just deciding that it's okay to extract more of it each year. also, if everybody had that much money, money would not be valuable in the same way - money only works if there is a difference between the poorest and the richest? we didn't just create value out of nothing.

    There are some major logical flaws in this theoretical concept of growth, which is based on certain presuppositions, which are not explicitly expressed before or after the video. Firstly the logic conducted here is based on the assumption that there is infinite growth. This is a major flaw, since its conflicting even with "kurzgesagt"'s own videos about the climate change. Nothing in nature is infinitely growing or has an unlimited lifespan. Since the human race is a part of nature, they are also bound to these laws. Secondly and this in line with the first flaw, there are just not enough resources for all countries on earth to reach the development of the highly industrialized countries. Thirdly and this is the saddest part about this is the presumption that class is completely ignored in this video. It is highly likely that almost all people on earth want the same stuff we have in our first world, but there is an interest of the ruling class to actually keep many people poor so they may fulfill the role as an industrial reserve army or a labour force reservoir to exploit as the bourgeois sees fit. Only in this manner profit for the rich is generated and is highly likely that the weak will still have to suffer what they must and the strong do what they can.

      Except it really isn't. At least not for the current form of capitalism. The point of the video is that we should be helping people in third world countries prosper, as it will long term help innovation. Modern day capitalism is too focused on individual countries, and not the economy on a global scale - pushing innovation in obscure corners we don't often think of. It'd require a lot of altruism to do this, altruism we're not exhibiting.

How do we isolate cells that are acting in their own, selfish interest and kill them without harming other cells? I'd love to hear what you think the answer is.

      Controlled capitalism. You seem to forget the incredible amount of suffering that American people lived under by the hands of companies like Carnegie Steel and the likes. And today, companies exploit workers to no end. Although this appears better locally, Chinese manufacturing companies like Foxconn have installed nets on their buildings to prevent suicide. Suicide that's committed because of bad working condition, manufacturing goods for the Western markets.. Do you want to have a product that someone literally committed suicide over? It's not only Africa that's not well off, its Eastern countries like China and India too. They exploit workers to the same extend like American companies did in the late 19th century

    Yeah but what about earth's resources for all of these things? We cant grow forever, rn we are taking more earth's resources than what earth is producing for us. All of these things need raw materials and there is already a lack of them. Even food and drinkable water could become a problem for everyone in the future. We are already consuming too much. Also if poor people became more wealthy, the prices would go up as there would be more demand combined with the lack of resources, so the raw materials and resources would become more expensive. And if wealth evened out, the smaller gaps would just become bigger. Cause even still, you cant get more if somebody doesnt get less than you. Money is only paper, not every resource on earth is renewable and theres not enough for everybody.

Ok, are the 9,200 downvotes/dislikes from people who benefit from inequality? Poverty is a natural “inevitability” sort of stuff? Just checking.

MAJORITY of the world. We made world a better place for a few but we don't care about most of Africa and Asia. there is a lot of hypocrisy, this video is great in a vacuum of middle class 1st world citizens. most of my cool stuff and majority of my nice food was made by poor people working for billionaires. We talk about space travel and cool gadgets and medicine not available for poor countries and never will be because poor people with no education have to work like crazy many hours just to feed their children.

    The major caveat here is that incentive for innovation is not always driven by personal financial gain. There are a lot of reasons why people look for better solutions to existing problems or for new solutions to as-of-yet unsolved problems, be it a desire to make an existing solution less of a burden to the inventors or innovators, to find a way to save more lives, or just because the inventors and innovators have a genuine passion for the subject matter. The rate of innovation is also not strictly dependent on the number of wealthy patrons you have, though more funding never hurts, the biggest bottleneck to innovation and invention is the number of passionate people you have working on the project in question. One of the very first professors I had in my engineering undergrad told us the story of a European inventor (whose name eludes me as of this moment) who had major funding from several nations to invent the world's first heavier-than-air flying machine. When he read in the paper that two bicycle shop owners in Ohio had done it first, he just quit, because the reputational and financial incentive were gone. No one is going to get rich off of being the second person to invent the airplane, so he didn't bother. The lesson that our professor was trying to tell us is that two people with little to no funding but a lot of passion for the subject will outpace a single person with a lot of funding but little to no interest in the subject matter beyond what they can gain personally from it every single time. So while more wealthy patrons can drive progress to an extent, they are far from the only drivers of progress

      ​@FaberOfWillAndMight You have completely missed the point. The point is not that over-exploited regions of the world should remain as they are, without sufficient infrastructure, education, and social services, these are all important from a humanitarian standpoint, and (as is the point of the video) an economic one. The point is that while market forces CAN drive innovation, they are far from the ONLY forces that drive innovation. In 2018 alone, the USDA added 67 new patents and 320 new inventions relating to improving and standardizing farming practices. In 1929, the patent for insulin was sold by its inventor to the University of Toronto for $1. The inventor said that the selling of such a live-saving invention for personal profit was highly unethical. So while market forces can drive innovation, especially as related to existing products and practices, those same market forces are extremely new in the context of human history (the system of modern capitalism on which the vast majority of the planet's economy is based has only been around a few hundred years), and the claim that innovation is entirely and eternally driven by supply and demand is both disingenuous to a lot of innovation and rationalizes (by omission of any other motive or force) selfishness as a universally beneficial human behavior, which is a difficult point to justify if you've made any in-depth study of human history.

      Know instead make that argument but with the Wright brothers dyeing of starvation in Africa, you cant innovate if you cant cover your basic standards of living. Also inventing new things has become even harder due to the complex processes and specialization needed to create some of the most common household items nonetheless a fusion reactor. I understand that passion has a large part to do with innovation but increased specialization and complexity just makes the economy an even more integral part of innovation as well, or at leaser more than it used to.

    Trickle down economics is a myth prepetuated by Reagan - and the premise at the start about living in a positive sum world? There is no account for the externalities of the ecosystem services we've over-exploited to the point of breaking in order to develop our economies. Kurzgesagt really needs to take a deep dive into environmental economics - their modified "greed is good" arguments are wearing really thin

      @Hecking Bamboozled You are unaware of your own privilege. The middle class of western society lives lives better than a king of medieval era. People have a horrible misconception of the economy that wealth is fixed like a pie. When in fact wealth is constantly growing, you'd have to ignore all of history just to stand there, scoff, and blame the 1%. From simple air conditioning, cars, health care, food, entertainment, and many other things that where previously unaccusable to the middle class. Nonetheless I never even said a word about trickle down economics. In fact you just dodged all my points and stated something complete random. My point was that, to help the world as a whole, we have to provide impoverished people with basic survival.

      @FaberOfWillAndMight ...Which only proves the point of the person you're responding to - that point being that trickle down economics don't lift those in poverty out of it. Which it doesn't. You rant a lot in these comments, but don't make many points.

      People like you have been saying that we will run out of recourses very soon since the start of the industrial revolution yet INOVATION has constantly won out in the long term and ultimately invocation is the long term solution to all environment scenarios, even you can agree that slowing down the economy is only a short term solution? So people have to ask themselves, how do we increase innovation? The answer, lift people out of poverty and you will have more innovators.

    Going to Vote??? Listen up... Everyone is Egoistic, We reflect that in Our Votes as well... But which Egoism works Best for You??? 1. Purely Egoistic: Voting for the Candidate/Party that Best covers Your Interest of Your Wellbeing, without taking into account Their chance of Winning the Seat/Election... 2. Intelligent Egoism: Of the 2 or 3 possible winning Candidates/Parties, voting for the one that Best covers Your Interest of Your Wellbeing... 3. Egoistic Altruism: Voting for that Candidate/Party that would be the Best at working to improve that Wellbeing of the Most number of People in the Society, even if You aren't under Their Political Radar... If Egoistic Altruism is going to do no Good for You directly, why is it the Best option to choose??? To explain it in simple terms, more the number of People moving up with You, more the number of People Who will be able to provide You with what You need up there as only those equal to You will be able work to fulfill You expectations...

    would like that vid much more without the attached solution path. i share the goal, but am repelled by the declaration of love to our younger history of capitalistic exploitation. Or did i missinterpreted the vid? Is it best archived with capitalism. how about we look at reality and wich other possabilities there are. the future is not just composed of of old way and our current way. i also think we need to make the world for everyone better to make it better for ourselfs. but i disagree with the way. better does not equal growth of the capitalist. that way comes with a price, that undermines the cause. inequality, polution, waste of resources and an destruction of our own habitat. but too many of us are willing to pay such a price for their new car, flight or sheap meat. the destruction of our future is something, that our barbaric ancestors are not guilty of. our current way of progress is build on the corpses of the weak and children of the future. we dont need all that stuff to feed the world and prevent wars out of need for food. but lets destroy the world to cure cancer ;)

    Yes, there's positive sum. However, top capitalist siphon money from ppl. Income gap is still a major concern. Instead of relying on demand aka money to drive cancer research. Why people just don't list it as a priority and get governments to work on it. There are more crucial research than IT, phones and electric cars. Capitalism is just a bad bad choice. Stop competition, just collaborate everyone will be better off, that's what the prisoner's dilemma trying to teach.
