I feel like socialism would halt an economy. Like, true socialism. I mean, if everyone has only enough money for "their needs", there's no investments because they couldn't get any profit. I mean, how would a stock market work on socialism? There would be no one to play if the government took their money and gave them back what they needed to live =/ Because that's how a lot of businesses manage to grow so well, because they sell their stocks. But there wouldn't be any buyers, and businesses wouldn't flourish... not to mention big-time risky investments that "filthy corporate fat cats" make, especially when it comes to medicine. The only reason medicines have advanced is because of the big profit, and when everyone is middle-class except for "the government"... idk. Am I wrong? Let me know below. Sorry for the text-wall, but I'm not making points, i'm fishing for info.
