Within pure capitalism (not cronyism, I'm talking about a completely free market) if a monopoly occurs, it happened because it's truly the best and most valuable service. If a monopoly forms and they jack up prices, a new service would spring up with fair prices and steal business. Ditto for if they start to cut corners. A new company would spring up and offer better service to steal business. If a monopoly forms and they're still fairly priced with good service, what's the problem?
What this is an example of is quite clearly cronyism. Government in cahoots with a corporation to provide protection and favoritism. It flies in the face of a free market

Communism and/or Socialism are shit economical policies and there is no argument for them in the slightest.
Fucking communist normies, go play CS on a government owned library computer if you love Stalin so much.

Did you hear what happened in Venezuela?
Don't give me the "that's a biased source" crap. Facts are facts no matter where they are presented from. If you have information countering this article directly, please present it.

This article does not explain how they attempted to do socialism, it talks about them having oil, but without a spending plan that means nothing.
It mentions money for goods, does the writer know that Socialism is not Communism? Capitalism is a huge part of Socialism, but heavily controlled by rules and regulations to save money for the country essentials.
But sure, lets use one country failing at being socialism as a reason for it never working, and if we are going that route lets also use American Congress to prove that Democracy doesn't work. We can apply this to every Binary idea of government and achieve nothing.
lets talk about Venezuela again, I have an article here that focuses on the economic reasons for why they collapsed, an poor focus on economic variety and poor decision making: www.americasquarterly.org/content/venezuela-ch%C3%A1vez-anatomy-economic-collapse-ricardo-hausmann-and-francisco-r-rodr%C3%ADguez
This article informs how their economic crises was fuel by Oil prices dropping, which was caused by Venezuela being over reliant on oil as their only export. www.nytimes.com/2016/05/28/world/americas/venezuela-economic-government-collapse.html
But sure, lets blame idiot economic decisions, which take place in multiple countries (see peoples stance on Military spending in the States) on the fact the country tried to go Socialistic without a plan.
Go look at Norways economic plans, and how it maintains a Socialist nation.
#122 - actuallybuddyboy (07/14/2016) [-]
Wouldn't you say that the ability to spread economic decisions across any citizen able to sustain a valuable enterprise would lead to a stronger and more diverse economy?
Isn't it basic knowledge that strength comes from diversity, and that you are only as strong as your weakest link?
With that in mind, how is socialism even considered an option at this point, when virtually all governments are corrupt to varying degrees ?
#123 - Shramin (07/14/2016) [-]
Yes, and that is an economic decision that successful nations make regardless of government style. Stupid decisions remain stupid regardless of government type.
That is also correct, hence the problem where Venezuela's economy was not diverse, it was purely focused on oil and when the prices dropped the country was fucked due to having no other options.
With that argument no government is an option, every government needs to form and adapt to benefit people as a country changes and they all need long term plans to succeed. It is also wrong to use rigid definitions of government to rule things, as it doesn't allow for variables or reactionary changes.
In the end you cannot blame major long term mistakes made on a government type, if the decision is government specific.

The money for goods part was when the people went to Colombia. It was not done in their own country.
Now I would really love to debate this with you. Seriously, I enjoy discussing different views and ideas, even if I don't think you will change my views or I will change yours. We need more intellectual diversity in society.
That said I just finished an exam, so I don't have the mental energy to go into this with you right now. maybe we can postpone the debate until later.
#119 - Shramin (07/14/2016) [-]
That is fine, debates can be picked up anytime in the future with the way funny junk saves comments.
The money for goods in Columbia is low scale economics, people purchasing items with their own money, it seems more that government and country scale economics was missing. The huge dependencies on Oil money, with no reserve plan seems to have destroyed them.
Don't get me wrong about socialism mind you, I understand that it wouldn't work in the US in its current state if attempted to be implemented with force or quickly, in the same way implementing any countries government system on any other country would be ineffective without a plan and long term development.
The US could benefit from aspects of Socialism, but only if integrated with the system currently in place, with back up plans and long term earning plans. The main problem is, as tittylovin has mentioned in previous comments, that a lot of politics and methods are viewed in binary.

Look up Rojava.
Also understand that every supposedly communist country you've studied has actually functioned as state capitalism.
Then don't pretend you understand economics.
