TB on Capital Myths and A Planned Economy

“Contrary to capitalist myth, the economy is not some kind of primal force of nature that just does what it wants like the weather. It is in fact possible to plan and manage an economy to some degree, provided the men doing it don’t have their heads up their asses and they have some moral sense of civitas. Permanent employment of white people with full benefits worked fine for almost a century, when American companies made their products here in America, marketed their products here in America, and treated their employees at least somewhat like human beings instead of widgets to be thrown away and replaced by a Mexican or outsourced when they wore out. There is no reason on the face of the earth why that system couldn’t work again if there is some kind of political will at the top to make it happen, which there will be in the Republic we are fighting to establish.”
