Wise man at 83 years young.
In the USA he would be called a "Socialist", as if that were a dirty word.

1. "Economic slumps are caused by having power in the hands of a few..."
"..., who have no responsibility to the country."

"People who are in debt are slaves to their employer."

2. He calls HIMSELF a socialist
Though to him (and to me, FWIW) it's not a dirty word. So I disagree with your implication that labelling him so would be incorrect.

3. That is why I qualified what I said
I said, "...as if that were a dirty word".
I certainly don't think it is.
