See, and that’s my point. You assume everyone who disagrees with you is an idiot. What, am I spitting out random memes and nonsense party lines?
You assume I a liberal who votes democrat? Sorry, to answer your question, the corporations didn’t run out of money after the new deal. They
didn’t run out of money after Bretton woods. Indeed, we had the largest middle class in history due to that, and society wasn’t going through the
booms and busts until it was all deregulated.
Corporations still made profit, they weren’t outsourcing, and wages went up. We had an industrialized economy, which we don’t now. The goose
didn’t die. Further, what we have now is the opposite of what you describe. The money corporations pay to labor share has been steadily shrinking.
What does it mean, when the work and productivity we produce has almost doubled, but labor share of gdp shrinks? It means they are plundering us.
What do you call it when they demand more work, and more productivity, but the pay they give is less? THAT is plundering. Now, let me ask you, what
happens when they have plundered so much that the working class can no longer meet their debts, no longer purchase their products, no longer afford
rent or mortgage? Because THAT is when the goose will have laid it’s last egg.
The financial sector and corporate sector are taking more and more of the money, that means the working class has less and less. This is what’s
called debt deflation, when the economy is contracting because people don’t have enough money to be consumers. This IS the path we are on. That you
don’t recognize it is not surprising because it’s not televised, just as the 08 crash wasn’t televised before it happened.
Now, you keep saying evil corporations. What is evil? Are corporations who assassinate labor union leaders evil? Because they did that in Argentina.
Same corporations still here in the us today. Are corporations who built and ran auschwitz evil? Yeah, that’s Bayer. Still here today. Are
corporations who kill indigenous through despoiling their food and water evil? Texaco, exxon, still happening. Are corporations who commit the
largest fraud in history, upsetting the worlds economy and demanding taxpayers pay for their mistakes evil? That’s citybank, J.P. Morgan, boa,
chase. Are corporations who incite a coup and overthrow a govt, destroying a nation and causing massive immigration to us, because they don’t want
that government to raise minimum wages, evil? That’s Chiquita and dole.
