Socialism Doesn't Work
Some shopkeepers have reportedly taken to weighing rather than counting the wads of cash customers hand them, and standard-size wallets have become all but useless in the socialist South American state. Instead, many people stuff huge volumes of cash into handbags, money belts, or backpacks, in scenes analysts have said are suggestive of "runaway" inflation.
Perhaps we can have a polite and civil discussion on economics. I'll start it out with some genuine questions.
- Is Sweden/Norway a legitimate case of socialism succeeding? I've heard this many times.
- Has capitalism failed on a scale as large as socialism has (seemingly multiple times: Venezuela, Russia, Germany)?
- According to a redditor and
, Estonia experienced a post-USSR reform based on Milton Friedman's Free to Choose. Is this entirely true (especially curious on this one as I love Milton Friedman)?
- I've heard that comparing [country that socialism failed in] to U.S is like comparing apples to oranges. Do you agree?
I understand I may be preaching to the choir here, but I'd love to see your thoughts.
