Via John Quiggin:
The nation and the bulk of the people are better off when strategic natural monopoly assets are government owned. That means;
- Grid Power
- Communications infrastructure
- The power to issue both fiat money and debt money (taking the latter power off private banks)
- All mineable natural resources (leased to companies with high royalties to govt.)
People who argue against these propositions are either corporate capitalists and the rich out for self interest or people who are sadly fooled by corporate capitalist propaganda.
It’s really that basic.
