Why Not a Mandatory Five-Year Plan? Why Not Adopt Every Element of Soviet Economic Planning While They're At It?
Reader comment on: 'Reasonable Profits Board'
Submitted by Belladonna Rogers (United States), Feb 6, 2012 18:30
This is beyond "the left." It wonders aimlessly and cluelessly into the world of Soviet economics -- an oxymoron. And why confine the "Reasonable Profits Board"'s purview to oil and gas? What about manufacturing and the housing industries? Steel and metals? What about media companies and children's toy companies? Why exempt publishing companies and telephone companies and hospitals? As Emily Litella might ask, "What's this I hear about capitalism?" I'm too irate to write another word.
Thank you for alerting your readers to this disgraceful idiocy.
