    Airbus CEO Tom Enders (C) and Sir Richard Branson (R), founder and president of Britain's Virgin Group, eat an apple next to Airbus sales chief John Leahy after signing a contract for 60 Airbus A320 jets during the annual Airbus news conference at Colomiers near Toulouse in this file picture taken January 17, 2011. Airbus sales chief John Leahy is one of the most prolific salesmen in industrial history -- a relentless chaser who with irreverent wit and the discipline of a politician has amassed a backlog of plane orders worth half a trillion dollars. More than anyone, the American is responsible for lifting Europe's Airbus to the number one slot in global sales. Leahy represents a flavour of raw capitalism that many Europeans are not by instinct happy to embrace. In France, where Airbus is based, Leahy has little to do with the Parisian elite and is in turn largely ignored by them, which may explain why he has yet to receive such common Gallic honours as the Legion d'Honneur.

    Workers look down from the head of one of the three turbines that a Kosovo-German company is building in the hills of Goles, near Pristina airport in this May 12, 2009 file photo. So far, wind turbines are not Sputnik. But one day they could be. The global race to develop clean technology is not just about who can build the best solar parks or wind farms. It is also shaping up as a contest between Chinese-style capitalism and the more market-oriented approach fancied by the United States and Europe.

    Photographs of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro are pictured attached to a tree in a neighbourhood in Santiago de Cuba December 29, 2008. As Cuba prepares to mark the revolution's 50th anniversary on Thursday, people complained about some factors and praised others in Cuba. When asked what changes they would like to see, most Cubans say they do not want a return to the capitalism in place before the revolution. Mostly, they call for tweaks to the socialist system, with a focus on economic need, not political reform. REUTERS/Claudia Daut (CUBA)

    A woman carrying a shopping bag walks past an advertisement in downtown San Francisco, California, in this December 9, 2008 file photo. After the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 killed thousands and shuttered U.S. financial markets, consumers were encouraged by politicians and business leaders to spend as a way of saving the economy and proving capitalism could not be crushed. But psychologists said the downturn could be a time for shoppers to pause and study what they are attempting to achieve or what void they are attempting to fill by spending.

    Co-chairman of the German Die Linke party Oskar Lafontaine gives a speech during the party meeting in Cottbus May 24, 2008. Few politicians in Germany have quite as much momentum these days as Lafontaine and the populist leader of the rising Left party is making the most of it. At a weekend congress in the eastern city of Cottbus, Lafontaine whipped up Left party delegates with attacks on market capitalism and basked in the glow of media reports that have dubbed him Germany's "secret chancellor".

    People walk past the entrance of a little alley with Chinese restaurants in Havana's Chinatown April 3, 2007. In communist-run Cuba, a land of ration books and rusting Chevrolet taxis from the 1950s, there is a tiny pedestrian street where capitalism is flourishing. Beneath hanging paper dragons and tasseled red lanterns, a dozen Chinese restaurants are doing a bustling trade serving up spicy pork noodles, fried rice and crispy duck, washed down with a Cuban beer or a mojito.
