Actually it would work fine if it was ever implimented. The problem at the moment is that we have corporatism rather than capitalism and inflation rather than real economic growth. The effect of that is to actually move money to the rich.<br />
<br />
The way to solve this is really simple: End price controls on borrowing and let the market decide prices, as it decides the price of almost everything else, and stop printing money.<br />

This would produce three or four years of deep recession but if all the legislation that protects corporations is done away with after those three or four years there will be high, probably record, economic growth,

Best Answer

No offense but after four years of deep recession I really don't think that another four years would be a good idea. What's funny is that Clinton raised taxes and raised spending and the economy boomed. It kind of seems to indicate that trickle down economics is bullshit. Just like Tax cuts.

Best Answer

You can have four years of recession or you can have rampant Zimbabwe style hyperinflation. The Clinton boom was an inflationary bubble, one of a series of federal reserve created inflationary bubbles since the 1920s.

Best Answer

Even if you blame it on an inflationary bubble under the Bush years Inflation exploded, as did spending and the deficit. Ultimately compounding and making worse the eventual crash.

Best Answer

Yeah and exploded even more under Obama. The crash that's coming when the stimulus money that Obama put into the economy is going to be truly massive. Keynesian economics does that, having a fed that keeps printing money and keeps interest rates at zero does that. Check out what's called the Miracle of Chile for what free market economics can achieve.

Of course it does. There is nothing in the modern world that did not have its beginnings in the wishes of at least one person to get further along than other people. The rest of us get dragged, kicking and screaming, into doing things new ways. The changes may not be fun, but on the whole, they are improvements over the alternatives. Over time, we have all netted better lives than our predecessors. <br />

No wealthy person wants his money to just sit there. He wants it to earn more money. That finances most useful endeavors. Do you really think that Jobs and Wozniak were in it for some giddy, altruistic reasons? They got financing. Did they get it from someone who just feels good helping out some bearded hippy types? Please. <br />

Time to grow out of the little self-absorbed world that most of us who are not very successful -- me, included -- live in, and understand that we owe our ability to eat, stay clothed, and have whatever amenities we have to the ambitious and the greedy.
