Why people prefer unequal societies submitted by daskapitalist to economics

fintekneeks 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago


Stated another way: do people equally get results? No.

How many people invented penicillin? If everyone is equal, why didn't everyone equally create it? The same will be true for cancer; someone will eventually cure it, but think about how many people have tried to cure it and failed. I want a society that unequally benefits the people who do the most for the rest of us - hell yeah, I want the person who cures cancer to be a trillionaire; he deserves it.

John Stossel just had a segment on Fox Business pushing Bitcoin as alternative Federal Reserve notes. Says he got in at $140 submitted by go1dfish to bitcoin

Could also be the uncertainty of central banks; I see more of this every meetup I attend, where more people trust their money less. Stossel seems to be pretty skeptical of central planners in general.

Colombia declares Bitcoin and other digital currencies illegal submitted by Fred-Stiller-OnAWire to cryptocurrency

Yes, this unfortunately impacted a good idea, but it reveals quite a bit about Colombia. This is one risk that is always present with any project.
