I'm not an economist so can't say what would work but it's obvious what doesn't work.Tell me Charlie what is your ideal economic system? Would you like to dismantle capitalism completely? If not how would you restructure it? For instance what would your top tax rates be? What socialist elements would you like to see introduced?
To say how difficult it is to change the tide, our last PM told us how he was gong to tackle tax avoidance while at the same time it was revealed that he gained his family's wealth from his father's tax avoidance schemes. What we're dealing with is corruption on a grand scale across the nations and how do you combat that?
You can tax people more heavily in your own country and give them the choice to stay or fuck off. That's how it used to be and I'm ok with that. My friend is a conservative and I mentioned him in my last post and he was saying we basically need to tax people more. My argument back was that people are taxed enough already, the problem is where we have the idea that a person can earn 300 times more than other people in an organization and then store his riches overseas and avoid paying tax on them.
Tackle that and then we'll talk money shortages and if any other tax rises are needed.
Socialism is just a theory, in reality the system run by the corrupt is taking the piss more than it ever has and political bias allows it. If all of us outside of that 1% realize and demand different that's what will make change. While we argue about poor people and Muslims or some other bullshit the smokescreen will continue. It's all just about divide and rule so a few greedy bastards can take what they can. Just think Robin Hood but in reverse.
