Why is market socialism wrong?
I am a registered Libertarian in the US and feel that libertariansm most closely represents my views. However, I had a really interesting discussion yesterday with a Communist, which really made me question things.
I had always thought of socialism as a big government enforced economic system, but she argued from the point of view of having the market enforce socialism. It didn’t sound bad, but I also don’t know how this could ever happen?
She also brought up how it’s unfair that business owners make so much more than their working class workers. I had always thought this was fair, but she really did make me think. I do know more than one highly successful multiple business owner who hardly works anymore and reaps in millions in profits each year… There’s no denying it – his workers’ marginal revenue product is way above his, yet he makes probably ~100x his average worker’s salary
