AskProfWolff: How Bad is this Capitalist Crisis?

A Patron of Economic Update asks: "Do you think capitalism can survive near-collapse only for it to use the destruction created by this event to re-build itself? It seems like people are so conditioned by capitalism that even capitalism's victims would want to try re-build it as it's the only thing we all know."
