Ok, what are they. And no, I don’t like textbook socialism or communism or Marxism or whatever.

There are even capitalist substitutes for neo-liberal versions of capitalism, but I guess people who suggest this in Texas will probably be considered to be communists or Antifa.
A capitalist substitute for ... capitalism? Makes no sense. Capitalism is capitalism; you didn’t specify “Texas Capitalism,” or “neo-liberal” Capitalism in your OP. And this Texan is all for learning from other countries and doing things differently.

Quote:
There are also alternatives to neo-liberal pandemic response, like TeTrIs or face masks, for instance.
Sure, but you are referring to sociocultural factors and not economic factors.
