Can you guys think of an economy where everyone one will be happy? I can't.
I just finished my first Ayn Rand work today Atlas Shrugged so I understand, and really always have, capitalism's superiority to other economic systems.sebas531 said:Rade, do you care to explain why you think that capitalism is a perfect econmy, where every one would be happy?(That is part of the topic)
There wouldn't be much incentive to do anything. You would have to build your own house. Get your own clean water. We would be living a primitive lifestyle. We do not really need T.V. There wouldnt really be many problems about land b/c there is an unlimited amount of land.Gelsamel Epsilon said:If everything was free and you had an unlimited supply of everything then everyone would be happy. But It wouldn't really be an economy.
Why are all these "problems" the economy's fault?? Should they both be paid the same?superweirdo said:The problem w/ the current economy is that great painters aren't being appreciated. A table tennis players tries just as hard as a basketball player but the basketball player earns a lot more. Why?
What makes you think a perfect economy would make everyone happy?superweirdo said:Can you guys think of an economy where everyone one will be happy? I can't.
Poor marketing.superweirdo said:The problem w/ the current economy is that great painters aren't being appreciated. A table tennis players tries just as hard as a basketball player but the basketball player earns a lot more. Why?
No, soccer sells more because of peoples demand for it. Marketing is a tool to either generate or enhance demand. It does so by trying to convince you as a potential buyer that you "need" whatever it is they are selling. Would marketing enhance the demand for table tennis, maybe. Would it ever rival the other major sports, no. People on average do not want to sit and watch table tennis. I believe most people think of it more as a recreational game than a sport.superweirdo said:naah, I don't think it is just marketing, look at how many people can see soccer and how many poeple can watch table tennis. Soccer sells more tickets b/c it is a bigger game.
