Where to invest? I'd like to see an Unethical Investment Fund - investing in stuff that mankind simply can't bring themselves to do without , regardless of the cost and consequences. Oil, booze, drugs, oil, tobacco, prostitution and armaments.
Until then, hard assets are probably the way to go.

It is not really correct to say that the system is misallocating capital. Capitalism will always allocate wealth to the top, so the current situation is a natural outcome.
The problem with any religion is the requirement to believe without proof. Thus, faith in the "invisible hand" of the market has proved no more effective than faith in all-powerful government.
