I remember seeing this image in a geography class two years ago, the school had made a little power point about sweat shops and how evil they are. The part of the image they didn't include, however, was the heading, and I think I know why.

That is so true. Here in Finland it's almost imbossiple to tell wether someone is poor or not, because almost everyone can afford expensive clothes. You have to know the person for a while to be able to tell if he/she is rich. There are lots of unemployed people here and everything is expensive.

irrationality capitalism? If he has no job how did he get the 70€ shoes? Most likely because of the social services or living allowances he received in some european country.

Which is an irrationality of the welfare state in europe, backed by the socialists and social democrats. It's irrational that someone has no job and can afford 70€ shoes, if there was a smaller safety net he would be working for those shoes.

Time and time again, opponents of capitalism blame the irrationalities and short falls of their own policies on the free market.

No, this is NOT how capitalism works. Capitalism is the exchange and goods and services without coercion and interference. In a free market, NEITHER of these scenarios are true.
