Luxury goods, if produced locally, tend to not be detrimental to the society and therefore should be allowed. Business need to exist, of course, as the government is simply incapable of running too many institutions. However, the amount thereof varies depending on the country, and as such there is no perfect recipe.

With regards to data collection, i am relatively sure that applies to businesses too, and if not it would not be detrimental to society to pay a statistics business to do the work for you. This point could also be attended to, if not fixed, in an effective technocracy (With democratic elections of course)

I admit that government workers can in many areas be massively overpaid, and that is an issue that needs to be resolved. However, businesses tend not be solve anything within these areas. Any work not deemed necessary in the local area would be moved to cheaper regions, and wages would be cut dramatically if there was no competition, which is often removed due to natural processes (ie: any natural monopoly). If competition within an area is easy, it tends not to be regulated, for example shipbuilding, tech production, etc.

You are definitely correct about there no being no "correct" way to run a democracy, and what the argument boils down to is comparing the effects of governmental control over the market. Private industry is better at adhering the needs of more localized scenarios, government corporations and private corporations are similar but different in many regards. There are necessities for both, but I believe the that the negative qualities brought on by increased governmental control on the economy outweigh the benefits.

That's an opinion contrived by my study of the Austrian model of economics, and the many notable minds who follow it.

In a utopia, what you mention would be true. However, social interest and self interest tend to be conflicting if the choice between one or the other emerges. Case and point: railway privatization of great britain, and the horrible conditions of the rails, left in their shape in order to save money and increase profits. Several accidents and derailings later, railways are made public.
Sure, the government does not always do it better due to the lack of personal profit, however at the end of the day it is always the most objective party. Furthermore, i see no problem with having entry-level positions in public sectors as long as this has an effective administration and effective educational systems, especially in the modern job market where despite sending in 40++ CVs and applications, having near perfect grades, being politically active, in good shape, etc. does not land me a job. I always need experience, which is what i cant seem to get because no one wants to give me a job. In my eyes, it makes no difference whether i work for a public or a private sector, as long as i am not being exploited to pay for a CEOs 120 foot luxury boat, but instead working to improve society and distribute services and goods. Optimally, i would like to see any profits i as a worker contribute to, reallocated, as you say, to the funds of the state or to expand businesses that are worthy of it (businesses that contribute to exports and competing in the international market.

Furthermore we live in a globalised society. Businesses move labour where it is cheapest, and as such they do not create as many jobs as one may imagine in the nations they are centered in.

Specific objective agendas are a strong-suit of the government, but that doesn't mean they can function to that extent in other areas. Data collection done by the government takes a long time to sort, meaning the government is almost always 6 months to a year behind the current state of the economy. Cabinet departments and ever-changing executive staff cannot accurately appropriate and predict the current needs of citizens. Most government employees have artificially high wages, that means for their wage to be that high, they are taking away from the potential for other people. Executives in private corporations make obscene amounts of money, but that's because of economies of scale and the negotiated amount taken out of the profits, it doesn't cut into the prospective jobs withhin the company. And with your problem with luxury goods, what of the boat builders, parts factories, and those who are employed because of the riches interest in luxurious goods?

With pharmaceuticals, sure. Profits is the sure set way to encourage the creation of new medicines and drugs. However, if a business is to have control over such important aspects of a society, they should be heavily regulated, and not be left to their own free will. Ones profits should never be prioritized over the well-being of ones society.

Let us not deviate from privatization and go towards the issue of monopolies. Any sector whose primary function is to help a society (health-care, major primary exports, to a certain extent public transportation - at least railed) should be owned by the state, as it prevents any exploitation or prioritization of profit above the well-being of the people.


The premise of my beliefs is that people are inherently greedy, and that a business will always priorotise profit above anything else. This is why certain areas in which the need of a profit can reduce the standards of care for the society, should be owned by the state. I do however, believe that all these public areas should be open to competition in small, heavily regulated amounts, as it maximizes effectiveness of the state to have competition.

Haven't you heard the Adam Smith quote, "It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest".

People act most effectively on self interest, and there's no evil in profit seeking. The most efficient outcome in society is linking self interest with social interest. If a corporation or company see's the prospects for expansion in the private sector and does so, that's their interest in profit leading to social benefits. Job creation occurs, the companies they do business with get stimulation, and with the increased supply of goods, prices drop. Chastising companies for acting on self interest and economies of scale while purporting that a government can do it better is a tad idealistic. Government corporations don't operate like others, yes the profits end up being split up and reallocated into public funds and entitlement programs, but that's the only societal benefits. Most of the positions created require graduate level degrees, have above market wage salaries which takes away from the amount of positions created , and the employees are almost always permanent due to it being almost impossible to terminate public positions. Public sector jobs are created for entry and technical positions, private sector jobs is the most pertinent to middle class America which is 80% of the population .
