Why don't 'they'
There is this common thread, that strangers are entitled to things other people own,
and that successful individuals and business entities, should, on the
whim of strangers, change the policies, practices, and pricing that enabled their success.
My general point, is, that nobody will impose the same decrees upon themselves,
that they wish to impose on businesses, and 'the rich'. You want to own that which makes nVidia and Coldplay, successful, but your cars are locked at night, rather than letting the homeless drive them away, your homes are locked when you go to work, rather than letting strangers come in and take what they like, your wallets are in your pocket, closely guarded.
Asking you to give me your best guitar is one thing, but should I then go on a forum to tell the world
that your refusal to do so, proves you don't understand how to manage your possessions?
People have the right to manage their own property and business, and to succeed or fail in the marketplace. Let the chips fall where they may. Now Spain has the chance to learn from
what happened in America: Our politicians bailed out banks, took over corporations,
and transferred bad debts into the future. The nations credit was downgraded, meaning higher interest and deeper debt, and now faces a second downgrade, since the bailouts predictably failed miserably. Investors trapped in the uncertainty of such chaos, are sitting on
their money, making the situation worse, unemployment has risen so fast, that anyone who
exhausts their unemployment account, is taken out of the employment statistics.
The media calls it 8%, when it is close to 19%.
Discussing critical economic policies an personal philosophies, is not trolling.
But the post from SR does prove again, that this is a talented community!
