In countries like mine, New Zealand, the socialist egalitarian society is disappearing and being replaced with this horrible model – the major underclass and the very small minority that hold all the money. It’s countries that have kept their immigration near zero and have socialist systems that prosper – admittedly there are very few.

He would do well by going back and re-reading the fundamentals of the banking system and how they relate to the american economy, Likening banks to “economic skimmers” is analogous to saying that John Deere drives up food prices because it charges for the farm equipment it manufactures. Do you suppose that Tom Perkins ever took out a business loan, or a mortgage, or raised capital for a business through a bond issuance, or maybe even did an IPO? Funny, seems like the banking system “highly participated” as Mr. Perkins became a self-made man. Can an argument to be made that the big bank bosses bring home obscene paychecks. Sure. But last I checked, people still attend Major League Baseball games, even thought most of the working public can’t afford the price of admission. Does A-Rod get blamed for that, too?

Lord Keynes used to blame ‘rentiers’ for bad economy under sound money and capitalism and suggested to kill rentiers via government inflation. Keynesian economics (non-stop inflation that drives the poor and elderly further into poverty and destroys long-term private capital and thus jobs) is the economic model in USA and EU since 1930’s. Complaining about ‘Rentiers’ today is the sign folks do not understand economics and cause & effect that govern economic life.

The intentions of the Founders of the USA are enough to solve this problem. They abhorred aristocratic wealth passed from generation to generation, and assumed all should produce enough for their needs during their own lives. Force the rich back to work and this crisis ends itself. A large death tax is the responsible, in fact the American, solution to the decadence and decline of European Monarchies, as in 1776, so it is today

Gimme a break! Politicians are in the back pockets of bankers and vice versa. Ultimately, they both come from the privileged class and either you’re in or you’re not. Altruistic idealism aside, there is no collective ideal without morality and morality is a subjective term in a relativistic society. You certainly can’t litigate morality.

Opposing the rentiers, in all their forms, is not the same as opposing wealth, honestly earned. It’s not envy, and it’s not sour grapes.”

The powerful will continue to confuse this point; they want the productive people of America to think they are on their side while the suck the blood out of the economy. And half the population has bought it. They rally against the poor single mom who needs help while the real parasites laugh in their penthouse.
