What makes for a growing economy ?
- View SourceHi michael haaheimYour points are well taken, but I still hold that the problem isusually Big Govt (by any philosophy) , with central command/control.On the other hand, a growing economy, whatever you want to call it, is one thatwill tend to maximize:(dollars in the private sector)/dollars in the govt sector +debt).rclough, rclough@...5/25/2012Liberals believe what they want to believe.Conservatives believe what they have to believe.----- Receiving the following content -----From: michael haaheimReceiver: MindBrain@yahoogroups.comTime: 2012-05-24, 15:11:35Subject: Re : [Mind and Brain] Thye socialist cannibalsOnce again, you are confusing socialism with communism; and, worse, you are confusing communism (which has never exsted at national level, anywhere, xcept in name only) with authortarianism.You are absolutely correct about authoritarian regimes. BUT THESE ARE NOT SOCIALIST.There is no workers' paradise. However, I am currently a socialist worker (in France), and I am a hell of a lot better off than I was in the US. Sure, I pay 35% or more in taxes, but I also get nearly free healthcare. Not to mention higher quality medical care.

Objet : [Mind and Brain] Thye socialist cannibalsWake up, people ! Socialism and fascism (all big govt with centralized control)\and command-- dictatorships--have brought mankind nothing but war,havoc, poverty and enslavement. What socialist worker was ever freed fromhis chains ? Where is the workers' paradise ? The ruins ofBerlin ? The desolated condition of Russia ? Cuba ? Venezuela ?It's no suprise that socialism - in its hideous the Nazi form - oncedestroyed europe, as it continues to do so today. Germany willsoon become the 4th Reich. Socialist neo-nazii parties are formingin Greece. Socialism has also destroyed Russia, in its communist form.Socialism has been the scourge of mankind throughthe useful idiots that support it here as elsewhere.Promises, promises, but no payoff...And europe as well. In fact every civilization hasbeen built by trade and hard work. Those that go socialist, aseurope, the UK and Japan have, destroy themselves fromcannabalizing themselves inward -- as they must-- instead of buildingtheir civilizations outward through trade and common sense.Ibn fact it is apparent that rclough, rclough@...5/24/2012Liberals believe what they want to believe.Conservatives believe what they have to believe.----- Receiving the following content -----From: Cass SilvaReceiver: MindBrain@yahoogroups.comTime: 2012-05-23, 21:39:29Subject: Re: [Mind and Brain] dumb luck is a poor way to boost the economyRoosevelt made sure that in the cut up of Europe, that the US would have a new Europe which needed rebuilding, and which needed manufactured goods. As Europe was devastated, the only country able to supply these needed components of infrastructure was the US. Compare New York with London in 1946. New York's stores are full of goods, London is still a pile of rubble. Japan was built from the ground up by American investors.Cass<snip>
