It’s really easy to find “cold hard facts and reality” with Google.

Here in Russia one of my hobbies is finding out the real source of many late-model American cars by running the VIN number through CARFAX. Almost without exception they all were reported stolen or ‘totaled’ by the insurance companies.

These cars are repaired or refurbished, and sold for nearly as much as a new car because Russians seem to think that the more something costs the better it must be… because if it wasn’t so good it wouldn’t cost so much.

Russians… I love ‘em, but they have a LOT to learn about economics and the concept of ‘value’

Estimates are that half a million “flood cars” hit the market after Katrina. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5173717

The cars are brought to another state or country and then sold at a public auction. The seller vanishes afterwards, or claims to be simply an intermediary, and no recourse is available under any laws of contract.

This is not the result of sad Russian history or cruel American imperialism. It is the result of greed common to all human history and culture, over all times. Capitalism often claims to harness that greed. Can such a thing as unethical profit-drive be harnessed? My ideology is purely that I hate all cheaters who prey on others.

Yours seems to be aggressive Americanism.

One of the key underpinnings of successful capitalist societies is Contract Law (generally) and, in the case of the USA, the Uniform Commercial Code (specifically). Other nations with advanced economies and trade policies have similar codes, in one form or another, to either outright prevent the sale of substandard goods, or allow restitution to the buyer if they were deceived upon sale of such goods.

Try to square your ideological assertions with cold hard facts and reality. Failure to do so leads to, well, . . . failure. Check out “History of the Soviet Union” for a great example.

If the people in Russia do as you say, it is not because of “capitalism.” It is because they still live under the rule of force, threats, fear, and intimidation, rather than the rule of law.

Moral of the story? Never drive your vehicle on ice. Leave it on the shore.

The conned purchasers won’t know that they have purchased a flooded vehicle until the frame rots. Ah well! Such is capitalism.

Most of the crew were shipped to camps in Siberia. One crew member, an electronics technician, escaped and made it to Vladivostok, where he fell in love with a Russian woman and opened an English Language School, a Japanese electronics store, and an inflatable doll factory (with knowledge from his days as a submarine crew member, where woman were in limited supply and much demand), and a second-hand guitar store. He still occasionally passes information on Russian consumer habits to the CIA, which of course promptly passes it to their betters in London.
