She said this at one point:
I also want to see more companies do profit-sharing. If you help create the profits, you should be able to share in them, not just the executives at the top.It's really hard to know if she really believes this, it might have been said just to shore up support with Bernie's socialists, but Trump acted like a beached whale after the comment was made, when it was juicy plankton that Hillary left in the open sea for him.
This notion that there needs to be "more" sharing of profit comes right out of Karl Marx, by which I mean the comments signals a remarkable failure to understand the nature of
6.central planning vs free markets
Just who the hell is Hillary to decide how much profit sharing should be going on between individual firms and workers, if any?
Many, many people just want a solid steady paycheck not based on the whims of profits. Taking the idea one step further, as the philosopher David Gordon said to me while discussing Hillary's comment, "Does this mean workers will have to participate in losses also?"
She, of course, meant no such loss participation. Share in profits let the capitalists take the hit on any losses is her game plan. Does she really think this is going to encourage capitalists to take more risks and hire more labor? Hillary definitely has some wires crossed with this kind of thinking, no expensive Obamacare paid for cranial CAT scan needed to detect this.
The comment from Hillary should have brought on more discussion from the talking heads post-debate then if Hillary had experienced a combo coughing fit and the shakes on stage after receiving a Lester Holt softball question. Yet, no such discussion occurred. Not one of them had an antenna that could detect Marxian mumbo jumbo from a United States presidential candidate. Is there any wonder why the country is in the mess it is in?
If a good portion of the populace understood the fundamentals of economics and the nature of freedom, I'm convinced that rather than being on a presidential debate stage, Hillary would be back in Arkansas with a job as a second rate bikini shaver in a high class joint.
