    Thank you for laying out the true business working mechanisms of nonprofits, universities and hospitals. As you know their are developed nations that provide these for free or practically free using only the same average 40% accumulated salary deductions that we experience here, After all our a’la carte deductions over state and federal tax it pans out the same. Capitalism as I have stated before does not only operate in private business but in institutions, civil service agencies etc. to include Defense, medical / hospitals, banking, State, federal, Legal / court system, and many more. Uncontrolled capitalism grows back and into every part of our lives almost naturally if it left to do so, as greed itself, which is what IT IS.
