LONDON, Sept. 17 (Reuters) – Capitalism has not served the US economy as well as it could have been, US House spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi said Friday, saying the system needed improvement.

“In America, capitalism is our system, it’s our economic system, but it hasn’t served our economy as well as it should,” she said at an event at Chatham House. “So we don’t want to deviate from it, we want to improve it.”

“You cannot have a system where the success of some comes from the exploitation of the workers and the exploitation of the environment and the rest, and we have to correct that.”
