Gross Output vs Optimality In Economics

Andy3692

Hello everyone, This is more of an inquiry than a debate. I am taking this college course, which emphasizes that we should focus on optimality as opposed to gross output in industrialized societies. The professor defines optimality as a balance between economy, society, and the biosphere. For example, we cannot simply focus on society and its needs, as we would bankrupt ourselves. Similarly, if we focus solely on preventing global warming, nations would spend too much and also bankrupt...

Corporate tax plan ideas for job growth.

So I took a decent amount of time to try and create a plan to incentivise companies to hire more people. I call it golden key economics. Please tell me if this would work, or if not, how could it be improved? National corporate tax rate: 30% Tax rate decreased by 1% for every 50k people employed. 1% taxes taken returned for every 50k people employed. 20% minimum tax floor. (Most companies hire less than 500k people anyway.) Small business recognised by sba 50% of taxes taken returned....

That Democratic Socialism is a good System

You comment that you are a "proud democratic socialist". Yet, there is really no reason to be proud. Democratic Socialism is based on the belief in a Socialist economic system, and a democratic governmental system. Yet these two systems are diametrically opposed. Democracy is founded on key beleifs of Liberty and freedom, as well as the chance to choose the country's leaders by winning a majority of voters over, or electoral college/seat votes. A true democracy is founded upon the ideology o...

Means-testing Social Security recipients unfairly deprives them of benefits that they are entitled to under Federal Law. They have paid into the system for decades and are entitled to a return for what has been taken from them. It constitutes a taking under the US Constitution and is illegal....

Cooperatives are better than traditional businesses

Capitalistslave
Forthelulz

If you don't know what cooperatives are, they are democratically-run businesses, in other words, the workers control the means of production of that particular business and vote on the policies of the company, what decisions to make, etc. Traditional business models have one person or a few people at the top making the decisions. The first indicator that cooperatives are better than traditional business models, is that 80% of cooperatives survive the hard first five years of being in busines...

Outsourcing

1. Some people are against outsourcing because they feel like they are losing local jobs to overseas. While companies like outsourcing because they are able to save a lot of money in hiring costs. 2. The United States outsources a lot of their customer service jobs from major companies to overseas countries like India for example. Companies can outsource to smaller developing nations to promote their products in that country. An example of this would be outsourcing car industry jobs to the Cari...
