What would you rather have: a crime free society, no debt, full employment, a green society, or the eradication of poverty?

No debt: stick it to China.

Green society.

You truly have made this country a green and pleasant land, free from the horrors of pollution, waste, and damage to the climate. We and the planet thank you.

Poverty eradication.

Nobody cheers as loud for you as those people you have raised out of poverty, in your triumphant mission to rid the curse of poverty from our country. Well done.

Crime free society.

Like nowhere else, the citizens of this country can now now walk the streets safely, and sleep sound in their beds knowing that crime is practically consigned to the history books.

No debt.

Oh how we look upon those countries with debt problems and laugh, now we have you as our astute and dare I say "prudent" leader. The bank balance looks just great.

Full employment.

Have you seen long queues of jobless citizens queuing for work? Neither have I, nor will I, in this land of full employment. And we owe it all thanks to your work.

If you have full employment no one should be in poverty..Unless your paying them horrible wages

Stefy: Some people in poverty have jobs.

Oh no I'm fully aware of that. That's because they are treated very unfairly by the system and our minimum wage is way to low. I think if someone works a full time job they deserve to earn a living wage that keeps them above the poverty line. Im not calling poor people lazy or anything that makes me sick actually.

Stefy: I'm just trying to justify why the two options shouldn't be combined.
Stefy says2015-05-04T18:39:57.8287226-05:00
Yeah i guess realistically people are terrible and don't pay people fair wages in the real world…i think i was thinking more theoretically sorry.

@PetersSmith: At full employment, there should be no underemployment as well, I believe, since the productive capacity of the economy is fully utilised. (It is not considered underemployment if it's voluntary.)

This is more fake than superheroes and sorcery. Even in those fictional worlds none of that exists.
