Force people to spend obsene gobs of money on insurance premiums that they cant afford. Act all surprised that theres no money left to pay the deductibles, so the sick stay home to avoid bankruptcy. Success!
Old story: get the nations to go into debt, then make sure they can never get out.
Instant rent machine!
With the EU, they made sure to toss in a shot of Muslim barbarian protectionism just to screw the people in a little harder (and make calls for a police state seem reasonable). Unfortunately for the oligarchs, this was a bridge too far and UK said enough.
Good on ya mate!
Pretty steep increase. Which rent was a fair rent? The old or the new?
If the old rent was fair, you should move. If the new rent is fair, you should pay up (after the original lease expires)
If the new rent is fair, but you want to keep paying the old rent, you should move to Venezuela. (take some toilet paper with you)
Either we get rid of rent seeking and let housing become affordable, or we accept what the free market says the price should be. You can't get it both ways.
I think this explains most problems we currently have. We want it both ways. We want a free market when we're talking profit, but not a free market when we're talking losses... We want subsidies but no price caps... The list goes on. Things would be much better if we could just be true to the prevailing theory.
I think the US would be better off without CA. Think about it, we'd be practically guaranteed a Republican president, Republican super majority on both houses, and control of the supreme court. The only thing that would really cost is is another huge wall to keep people from California from immigrating.
Sooooooooooooooo let me make sure I have your position correct here.
The answer to replacing minimum wage jobs is to let robots do those jobs and then give the unemployed people high paying tech jobs to design and repair the robots.
You don't see a problem with the math on that?
This does require a clarification:
Unemployed Americans can get jobs building and maintaining robots to do pizza making and delivery. The people who currently deliver pizza will be deported to their country or origin. Hence, it should lower overall US unemployment.
The very high income rank of "Lithuanians", "Latvians", and "Russians" is deceptive. What is really going on is that Jews are being lumped in with others from those countries to not stand out as much as it would if Jews were properly included as a group by ancestry, which they are. The list on that page says "By ancestry" but actually it's by country of origin.
I don't see exactly why someone feels the need to obscure Jewish income. So it's high. Good. They should be proud of it.
