Socialism vs. Capitalism with Peter Berkowitz
Is capitalism the best economic system for the world?

Laws and enforcement to ensure the citizens use them safely. Contracts have to be drawn up between purchasers and sellers to assure what is being bought is what the seller says it is and the buyer has a means of redress if it isn't.
