It's getting to the point where impossible policy gridlock is more common than not. It doesn't matter whether it's the hardcore liberals or the hardcore conservatives that take the Oval Office, or the majority in Congress, or even the courts, because regardless half the country won't be represented. This country won't operate well for much longer if we don't elect a moderate of some sort in 2016.

User avatar #49538 to #49537 - pebar (10/21/2013) [-]
On a personal level, be aware that all decisions have trade offs. If you want to stay informed on current events, just know that your time could be used doing more productive things.

Do you just want to know what your political philosophy is? If so, I suppose we could help you with that.

Insurance in itself isn't exactly good at times
It can be great for critical damage so they pay more
But the percentage for just a checkup is kinda a bit ehh, but I think it's good for the perk to pay less for critical damage

Forcing them to have it isn't either gonna help our "poor" side of the population, all it's doing is having them spend more than they may actually gain
Even the fine is outrageous, I think
You're just increasing taxes without saying it is taxes, and we really don't need $500 taxes
But I honestly don't know much about it, and what I hear I really just don't think it's really done

Boorshwazy: "Damn, I wish I could exploit my workers for more profits but then my competition who pays his workers better will get all the workers. If only we could collude we could get better wages. But too bad that selfish asshat always breaks the deal to maximize his own profits. I hate Nash equilibriums; feels bad man..."
User avatar #49782 to #49516 - oxan (10/25/2013) [-]
Value isn't created in exchange.

If Company B pays high wages, and Company A beings to lose workers, then Company A will simply have to increase wages, too. Back at square on.

While Company B is getting more workers, and may have a higher output of goods, they're still not necessarily going to be making higher profits.

The key is in increasing surplus value. If surplus value is not increased in proportion, profit tends to fall.
User avatar #49788 to #49782 - pebar (10/25/2013) [-]
Not necessarily higher profits for more workers, no, because efficiency of using capital decreases for each additional worker; for example, it would be inefficient to have 10 workers using 1 frying pan at the same time. This is law of diminishing marginal returns. The profit (not revenue) maximizing point of a business is when marginal cost, the wage given to the worker, is equal to the marginal revenue, the value of the output they produce. It is not profitable to hire more workers past that point because they wouldn't be adding net profits.

Also, value is created in exchange. Capitalism is not a zero-sum game where one person's win is another's loss. The only reason a person would voluntarily trade is if they believed they were better off from the transaction. If you were losing something in the transaction, you would not consent.

Ukrainians marched in the streets this past week looking for a renewed Polish-Ukrainian nationalist alliance against Moscow. They expressed that they wished for civilization and Western influence to return to the Ukraine, and that could only come with rule from Warsaw.

Meanwhile Russia is getting AIDS, like niggers elelel. Poles are of superior stock.

The new strain which is being spoken of was first reported in Siberia. Unless goat herders have migrated that far, this is of an east slav variety. Muslims simply caught it and spread it to their goats and families; a continuing cycle. Just like nigs first caught AIDS by monkey bonding.
