Venezuela And Britain

Recommended Posts

The Government here is currently waging a hate campaign against the energy companies.

In Venezuela the Government is using the same tactics to manipulate the people:

....no actually i do agree that a very small clique of people have an excessive amount of leverage over lifes basics.

the bit we disagree on(and also with nulabour), is that the solution is to NOT put everything into collective ownership.

the sort of society I'd like to see is one where the workers DO get a proper share of proceeds( ie 10-20% of profits)..the same % as the bosses.

...if you don't make profit, you don't get bonus.....and company has a responsibility to ensure welfare of workers, and also surrounding community..

...in olden days it was sort of called "tithing"

I would call it quaker capitalism....along the lines of the cadbury/fry/joseph rowntree variety.

that's what's wrong with the present system.

the bosses f**k up they get golden parachute

the workers don't make it because of bosses f**k up they get the boot,

I ain't going to click a Usa Today link, for the same reason I avoid the Express.

The UK energy problem is largely government tolerating a cartel. Previous head of OFT said last week a full competition investigation should have started in 2009 to break those companies up and prevent vertical integration, but neither big party will come out and say this.

Venezuela has bigger problems, but perhaps the fascist comparison (big gov loves big biz and vice versa) is relevant:
