in the last several decades They will give you a job, healthcare, education, college There is a theme park that you have a lifetime pass to o Sweden: They are socialist Not communism They provide a shit ton of benefits to their people as well
September 14, 2016 When a woman gets pregnant she has a baby she has TWO YEARS of paid maternity leave Very equal society Q: how does Sweden pay for the benefits? A: they don’t control the businesses and resources but they have very very high taxes A third of what you make you give to the government The sales tax is so much They tax the sweet Jesus out of luxury items o Cars, vodka They take the money from the taxes to make an equal society economically o China: This is confusing because you think they are communist They aren’t economically!! They have been on a big move to the right of the spectrum They have a billion people there so they can’t give money to everyone They tried to run all the industries but they have been walking away from that Letting things privatize and collect taxes off everything o Russia: Huge used to be communist country USSR collapsed in 1990 o India: Socialist experiment in last 50 years Moving towards capitalist side Taxation and selling licenses and fees to the businesses They don’t give as much to their citizens as Norway or Sweden or Saudi Arabia o UK: Maybe invented capitalism in the modern area Adam Smith was the play book of capitalism They don’t run any industries or resources o Germany: They don’t like to run the economy much either BMW factory
September 14, 2016 They are industrious and make lots of products but they like that to be privatization o USA: Kings of capitalism!! Push free trade and capitalism We provide lots of stuff!!!!... Kind of But their benefits are no where near even the top 10 of countries who provide stuff There’s no free health care No maternity leave No free college The US really does not like to be in the business of business The US doesn’t like to be in the private sector at all They are very quick to say yes in times of emergency or war we will have nationalism but we will back out immediately The amount of social benefits actually given to citizens is actually very small compared to the other countries - Real people all over the planet have to work real jobs to get real money to get real paid!!
