Nationalism vs. capitalism Mon, Mar 31, 2014
It seems that nationalism inherently conflicts with capitalism.  Capitalism is sort of about making and selling things for maximum profit, independent of location and people groups.  Nationalism says, "Buy American."  But it's fairly obvious either through rational thought or personal experience that any one country can't possibly make all the best products.  For example, America might've been the best at making cars at one time, but their status has been pretty much replaced by other countries.  By being a nationalist, you're not being a capitalist.  And when the crowning achievement of your country is its economic system which it tries to export to the world, it's kind of ironic to be nationalistic. #business
