Wealth Inequality in America

271 posts in this topic

I like the idea of privatzing schools. I don't like the idea of redistributing personal wealth to corporations which is really just redistributing wealth to shareholders.

You don't like the idea of redistributing itself or redistributing to shareholders?

I personally don't have a problem with the idea of redistribution of wealth, I do have a problem with it via government.

I guess we could make these corporations non-profit but that has it's own set of problems.

Generally don't like redistribution of wealth but realize unfettered capitalism that shuns all redistribution is problematic. We do need a little socialism.

As long as we have laws that require kids go to school, the public is going to pay for schools ether directly or through tax dollars. Let's use some of that money towards private schools but leave it up to the schools to figure out how to make a profit.

Agree with this 100%. And while some have trouble admitting it, the arguments between conservatives and liberals regarding economic policy mostly boil down to how much socialism should there be.

That's why the inheritance limit would be so high. Plenty of money to support generations of a family.

So what is the solution?

Put all the money on a pile and divy it up equally.

Raise minimum wage to an actual liveable wage would be a good start.

i always enjoy some good anecdotes about drug addicts

Are you projecting? Because you certainly arent reading.

But dont worry about it, I'm sure you understand everything there is to know about poverty.
