The two main schools of economic theory argue back and forth which one is right.. The neo-liberal side won't let you use graphs of older experiments showing their theories because they have been total disasters ..
So how about a live and upfront view of today . Two examples of the different results pursuing the opposite strategies and the results. Notice please 10 year old's working in factories to support their out of work parents..This should show you just how low the manufactures of the world will stoop to make profits.. They even brag how to overcome the low wages they are paying ,they are making 2 and 3 cent versions of things like toothpaste, and shampoo.
The conservatives try to use recent experiments of their unregulated, trickle down economic bullshit as a great success story by once again using a snapshot of time to prove their point..Problem is if you run the program just a little further you get the EU the UK and others who followed their ideas are all wallowing in the depths of depression.. Huge unemployment, cuts is social programs and depths of despair not seen since the depression or the great wars..
As the first link clearly shows , Latin American development has been showing good growth led by folks like Cesar Chavez and other progressives that progressive economics does still work today.
So now we sit here with living evidence that the conservatives are as wrong today as they have been wrong in the past.. and you have clearly seen in the articles presented they are willing to go back to using child labor is factories ..
Clearly the only answer to stop them is a massive program by all workers and bill payers to stop working and paying bills , not even buying their 3 cent shampoos . Stop the wheel , the screams will be quick in coming and it will be from the fat cats who are no longer making a buck.. Sure everything will crash and then they will realize the depth of their mistake.. When all their toys quit working and their is no one willing to make them work again..Then we will have our day..
Sounds drastic , I know, but sometimes it is necessary to experience some pain now for a better life in the future..On our current path only misery lies ahead.
