I'm not a banker or an economist, it wouldn't be my job to implement a new system.
But a system that is based on greed, corruption, looking after the interests of the richest in society and not the poorest, with tax breaks and
bailouts a plenty.... is NOT the right system in my opinion.
CEO's and bankers bonuses are up this year, many as much as 40% (While the rest of society is on a pay freeze or essentially CUT with inflation
rising).... and these are banks that the taxpayer bailed out... you know, the socialism and handouts that people seem to have such an issue with.
The banks have taken more money than most realise.
Isn't that nice... the people who caused the mess are still being rewarded... essentially with taxpayers money.
But that's ok isn't it?
It's only when the poor get money that it's an issue... not when the rich get it, that's all fine and dandy.
Is it fair when 97 out of the top 100 FTSE companies all have offshore subsidiaries so that they don't pay the full UK taxes because their companies
are registered in tax havens.... It's probably the same in the US.
Tax avoidance and evasion cost the system a ridiculous sum.... the amount is just staggering.
All I want is a fair system, a system that isn't as bent and corrupt as possible... one that works with the people and for the people... not against
the people, trying to get as much out of the people as possible.
I want politicians that are ruled by their conscience and the will to do the decent and moral thing for their constituents, not ruled by money and
corruption and doing all they can to line their pockets.
I want banks to have fiscal responsibility and to give the best advice to their customers and give them the best deals and look after their money, not
fritter it away and operate in a ponzi scheme type system.
Not mess around with toxic debts/assets and give people money who they know can't afford it.
I want all of this to be independently regulated and checked and I want us to move back to a place where everyone wasn't out to make as much money
from other people's misery as humanly possible.
That would be a good start.
