Re: "Common ownership"?
Sep 09, 2003, 00:04
But why would I bother to build bicycles at all if I can just smoke herb and rock all the time? What is the incentive?

The problem with "utopian economics" is they are based on the assumption that everyone WANTS to work, and no one is lazy and selfish.

Who is going to volunteer to pick up the trash and scrub the toilets? Nobody I know!

If there were no economic incentives, what incentives would there be to get people to do unpleasant but necessary jobs? Everybody would only want to do the "fun" jobs.

I am no fan of "9-5 wage slavery" but I am still waiting for someone to come up with an alternative that might actually work.
