Spending Feeds Capitalist System
If the capitalist system is dependent on 67.5 percent spending, which is provided by the habits of the proletarians then shouldn’t the proletarians have jobs or a hybrid system of work in which they are paid a living wage of $15 to $18 an hour minimum or a temporary job or some payment for non-labor to put money in the spenders’ pockets. The money hoarders do not want to invest in factories, they want to invest in bonds, stocks or extend credit line loaning money to countries that cannot repay or student loans. So what needs to be done is to tax the cash hoarders so governments worldwide can start rebuilding the crumbling infrastructure worldwide. Here in the U.S. we need to rebuild our bridges, highways, water mains, sewers, electrical grids, railroads, schools, waterways, fiber optics, clean energy and all the jobs that would be created if we invested in these areas. If the government focused on these areas, then it would create opportunities for investors to be able to maintain or start a business by having a good infrastructure to work with. Some countries, like Egypt, have already started rebuilding. Egypt is widening the Suez Canal; China is busy building dams and roads in its country, so in other countries there must be ways to pay for the improvements. The rich loath people on government assistance programs, but these rich people aren’t willing to pay their fair share in taxes or create jobs to hire poor people to work in these kinds of projects that would get the poor off government assistance. You can’t have it both ways. If the rich want a capitalist system then they need to be helpers and not just takers, and if they don’t want to play fair then maybe we need to change the game on them. The status quo is not working well for the majority of the people in this country. With the economics, social and political crises and the intensifying class struggle could very well end in World War III if the working class fails to take state power and take the power to wage war out of the hands of the imperialist rulers.
