    Under a fully communist system, how would you deal with the loss of economic share for barbers given that a significant proportion of the population would inevitably grow beautiful, bushy Marx-beards?

    @the Socialists, why do you think workers would be better than current management structures when they can't even get my order right at McDonald's?

    This is because they are oppressed. Once released from the shackles of capitalism, they would be free to proceed to create a new tomorrow where all share in the McLovin' wealth.

    In a situation where ones income was directly affected by the profitability of the company they worked for, one would be incentivised to pay more attention at work and get your order right, thus leading to a better situation for both the consumer and the worker.

    It is worthy of note that in a large company like McDonalds, workers would not ordinarily take on the management themselves, but elect one of their most competent colleagues to do so.

    Would you say that Regan used Keynesian economics? Also if Keynesian economics isn't left wing then whats your whole point( from previous threads). I did some research and there are right wing Keynesian, you simply cut taxes instead of spending more. Greg Mankiw could be seen as a right wing Keynesian. Many tory governments have adapted loose Keynesian policy before. You can also mix Keynesian economics and free market economics which give an ideal combination IMO. But it all depeneds on the situation the economy is in. Regan was successful and right wing. He cut taxes massively and increased public spending(keynesian I believe, please correct me if Im wrong, Im in year 11 so not as educated as yourself) and there was 92 months without a recession ( this was a very sucessful recovery). The economy grew a third and growth was at its highest in 50 years and unemployment fell. Would you be able to class regan as a right wing keynesian? The only bad part of his presidency is that the debt soared alot however he was intent on winning the cold war and it may not have been as bad if he wasn't .Arguably is trump going to use Keynesian economics as he is going to cut taxes lots and increase spending on infrastructure etc.

    Also as you don't like new labour but admitted that blair did a good job of the economy(John Major left the economy in an excellent state and blair inherited the most successful economy ever so its no surprise he did a good job,John Major led an excellent recovery and is under rated IMO.)
    and this doesn't make sense. I think Blair did a good job on the whole( except banning grammar schools ad iraq but its easy to criticize him now and the tories also backed it).
    Do you believe that new labour allowed deregulation of the banks? ( and is this why you don't like them).
    Finally you said that the tories were left wing, please explain yourself there( although I partially agree as the NHS and welfare still exist).
    Which figures would you consider to be socialist ? Would u class ed miliband as a socialist? Whos the most right wing person u could class as socialist?
    Would you say that david cameron is left wing?

    How do you go about setting that link between profit and performance up? As far as I'm concerned, at least in the US, the left has been fighting meritocracy for years in favor of a guarantee of pay. If worker pay went up and down with profit, some paychecks would inevitably be very small, while others very large.

    With reference to the second paragraph, how is being elected by colleagues, who are prone to social pressures like the desire not to alienate friends and who have less business knowledge, better than a manager evaluating various candidates?

    Whether it's better would be relevant, the co-operative model would be forced on all firms for reasons of 'fairness' or to stay profitable given the advantages that the Socialists would give co-operatives through the tax system ect.. At least that's what previous attempts here have suggested (large tax advantages for firms that become co-operatives).

    Brand new members to the MHoC very rarely become MPs straight away as there are no more than 50 MPs in the House at any one point. I'm sure though if you get stuck into the House and your party, you'll definitely boost your chances of becoming one in the future.

    Especially if the socialists get decimated next election, the chances of getting a seat will reduce!

    Socialists will do well because most of their vote is in House and they've been reasonably active.

    Why did the socialists copy the old libertarian party's QT thread name?

    https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...d.php?t=547420

    You'll see here that the thread titles are almost identical; socialists are closet capitalists confirmed!

    1. How would you explain the differences between socialism and communism, and why do you choose socialism over communism?

    2. What do you think is the best method to build socialism in the UK? I find it extremely hard to believe that electing a party into Westminster government will result in a socialist state for this country.

    4. What are your immigration policies?

    5. Your stance on solidarity with Palestine?

    6. In what situation do you think business can work in favour of socialism? (Not sure if that's a good way to word this question, you mentioned that you would be in favour of business for the common good?)

    7. Why in gods name do you "love" Blair?

    Sorry if some of these have been asked already I didn't have time to read through the whole thread.
