Comments on: Tim Geithner’s poor imitation of John Maynard Keynes http://blogs.reuters.com/justinfox/2010/10/22/tim-geithners-poor-imitation-of-john-maynard-keynes/ Wed, 03 Nov 2010 15:52:22 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Unsympathetic http://blogs.reuters.com/justinfox/2010/10/22/tim-geithners-poor-imitation-of-john-maynard-keynes/comment-page-1/#comment-60 Fri, 22 Oct 2010 22:28:34 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/justinfox/?p=30#comment-60 Tim, the reason that citizen is able to hold onto that capital is not because he has guns.. there will always be organizations of people with more guns. The reason that citizen is able to maintain that capital is because of the system of laws in whatever country he calls home.

If that person wants to risk his capital in areas with no laws, he is always welcome to do so.

When you choose to spend your time in a country with a strong legal foundation, you’re going to face this issue.

Choose wisely.

A foul and disgusting idea. For of course, it’s not the “country’s” capital, it is capital that belongs to an individual who happens to be a citizen of that country.

And the idea that a country should be allowed to decide what an individual should do with their own property is, simply, foul.

Must be a day that ends in “y.”
