For that nirvana to happen we would need to:
This is where I completely disagree. It's a form of communism
We need more and more technology, discoveries and inventions to better our lives, and only countries that practice capitalism have been able to deliver it.
I believe it was the industrial revolution in England that set off a sustained economic boom.
The social consequences of the plague on society came to be profound. The high mortality rate resulted in a drastic decline in the labour force.. Wages rose for both agricultural and urban workers. The survivors of the Black Death generally had a higher standard of living than before the plague. This was a phenomenon that occurred in both urban and rural areas. The crisis caused by the Black Death led to many changes in the economy, in response to the fall in the population. Because of the labour shortages there was a move from labour intensive farming such as cereal to livestock and increasingly both in industry and agriculture more labour saving devices employed.
Dan - no worries on the trolls, but I'm still not understanding what motivation one would have to build structures to sell.
In your example a guy purchases land for 200k, adds 50k in improvements. And gets 250 back when he sells (the 10k excess price being taxed). I get that. However I'm not understanding WHY he would do that? Say he spends 3 months building this house to sell, but his earnings during that time were $0. Why wouldn't he just work at McDonald's instead?
Because dan hates his job and realizes other people would not want to work there...
me123 saysHey Dan, have you figured out yet how a building can appreciate? Since you own so much property, that question should be easy for you to answerWhy don't you tell us?

Especially where we have trolls, 14 votes does not equal 14 voters.
This is free speech where all voices are heard.
Often when you go into your long rants i just scan right over them.
I could point out ALL of dan's inaccuracies, inanities, and hypocrisies. But I don't. Life is too short.
Devices that hurl projectiles have recreational and self defense purposes when possessed by an individual.
Dan has a lot of personal experience in not being sexy,
Jesus christ dan. Grow the fuck up.
Quote of the year. You summed up Dan perfectly in this one sentence.
Reaching Space first with captured German scientists was probably their only achievement.
Most things are made in China because of cheap labor.
To date, China has contributed very little to scientific progress.
Hey, I agree. Examples of wealth and power concentrated in the hands of the few are kings, dictators, religious wackos, and communists. Not in democracies such as ours.Why can't you see it?
Dan8267 saysIf I answer it, will you admit you are wrong?If you could answer it you would.
If I answer it, will you admit you are wrong?
Translation: I got nothing.
Do you think if you keep repeating the Alt lie over and over, it will become true?
3 of your 5 upvotes came from Iwog and his Alts. How do you like that?
Dan - I'm read your response but if we can carry your hypothetical to the end I think I would understand better. So if our builder friend bought the land for 200k and spent 50k on building improvements (again new build- not flipping). If he sold for 3 months later for 260k, and the 10k gain was taxed at 100% (meaning he got his original 250k back) where is our builders profit?
Man you are an idiot.
dan. Can't we have a civil debate?
Why are you running away from these questions?
Wrong. China is proof positive of the success of capitalism. China started shooting up the moment they adopted capitalism in their economy. They now have well over a 100 billionaires. Think that's communism?
Dan8267 saysStrategist saysTo date, China has contributed very little to scientific progress. Empirically false. You are simply sticking your head in the sand. China is rapidly owning all STEM and manufacturing infrastructure. It builds entire cities in less time it takes America to build a 9/11 memorial. It is at the forefront of many technological industries.Inventions, discoveries, and creativity is firmly in the hands of America. You just love to bash America don't you? Pathetic. You should be stripped of your citizenship and booted out.

You need both for the kind of success America has achieved.
The livelihood of the whole country is destroyed by your tax plan. You need to stop dreaming.
Dan8267 saysWealth is created only by productivity.The credit for which goes to capitalism. e.g. Ford created the assembly line in his car factories.
Wealth is created only by productivity.
Dan, If someone purchased a pice of land for $20K, and he is willing to sell, and I am willing to buy for $50K, why do you care?
joeyjojojunior saysAnd the land under them has appreciated. That was Dan's point.No, Dan doesn't have a point, he's clueless, just like you.
And the land under them has appreciated. That was Dan's point.
me123 saysWait, you've been saying all along in this thread that the building doesn't increase in value, only the land. Are you confused?It didn't. Someone put money into it. That's not appreciation.

@Dan8267 look at each response you got and analyze what is supposed to happen. You are supposed to feel some negative feeling, right?
So here is CIC, tactical leader, is logged on using 3 different emails/names plus anonymous, flanked by Strategist, TL, FortWayne, all of them just rarin' to swarm on anyone who comes and speaks out against GOP talking points. --that's the oppressor, they want to feel the power of the oppressor.Mind you, it's not because they love GOP so much, and not because they love Trump so much, they just love being a dominant tribe, and they feel powerful telling themselves they can make you feel bad, and no matter what you know you are going to lose and feel it too.
Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under.
Stop sucking up to Patrick. It's disgusting.
