Impact of Capitalism on Trump Voters

Dark Side of Capitalism 2
This post is actually going to contain two parts: the first part about the personality traits of the Trump voters and the second part about capitalism's role in the election.

Capitalism’s Impact: When the Largest Employer Leaves a Rural Town

Walmart - When They Leave Town
Walmart is one case of how capitalism does not help the average person. This article by The Guardian describes how one town in the US got impacted by Walmart when they came roaring into town and now, when they left.This town in West Virginia was different in that they embraced Walmart when the big box store arrived because it brought in jobs. I remember reading articles on how towns foug...
