100 million seems to be a popular figure for the number of people killed by communism but how many have died because of capitalism?
Edit- 'How many people have been killed in the name of advancing capitalism?' was suggested as a more correct question.
Edit - 'How people have been killed by capitalist regimes?' was suggested as an easier question.
Edit - 'Specify how many people were killed by the circumstances brought on by this specific economic system,capitalism, and that would include political power?' was suggested as a more difficult question
Edit - It has been agreed that 'How many killed by capitalism?' was a flawed question.
