Interesting take on economics here . Christopher rants and raves but offers no ideas....true Socialist/Communist, the rest of us just want a LIFE and are not earning or stealing enough to be able to support our local drug addicts/criminals/big fat gypsy families, as they are accustomed to .
Idealism is really cool when you are making money for nothing by buying and selling other peoples houses,and the chancellor stands up and declares "The end of boom and bust", but when the excrement hits the oscillator, it's not such a bona idea .
The ONLY system that WORKS is Honesty. Honest days pay for an honest days work .... eventually someone HAS to MAKE something. We can't all be day traders and hairdressers and estate agents or politicians ...(.as in France )
The BBC news was very honest with it's assessment of the problems facing the World economy I thought , and we will be living in "Interesting Times" to quote my favourite author, who it seems ,isn't writing satirical science fantasy after all .
I DID enjoy my Rant ...Ithankyew...I'll get me coat.
Moved here 7 Years ago , love it , love Life here.
