Capitalism: doesn't it make you (mentally) sick?

Kind of a vague bogeyman these days, which is why I put it in quotes.

I think the problem has much more to do, as is usually the case, with how people live their lives, not how they make their money. Of course, how one makes his money can and does condition his life to a certain extent, but people all over the world make cash by working. It's how they spend their cash and live their lives that makes the real difference.

I disagree. The word "capitalism" is being used more than ever these days. Google News brings up 6,700 recent news stories using the word. The top hits are about Blair, Merkel and Sarkozy calling for a new capitalism, and the word is right there in the headline.

Well, to be fair, Momus did refer to a particular strain of capitalism, but I'm still not sure it's really all that descriptive anyway.
