Imagine thinking free money can ever work. The only way it could work to some extent is if 99% of jobs were automated and huge corporations ran the country, not the government.

That's not free money. It's the reward for investing into a company and allowing them to use your money to earn the "free" money which you are then distributed.
2019-03-14 17:19
This governmental money is a reward for participating to the state, I don't see much difference. Also, is not the State using tax payers money the very same way companies are using share holders money? Both case it is free money : you get it without doing any direct work to get it.

They're not paid to participate, they are paid for doing absolutely nothing. UBI was trialed in some areas, and it failed, because people lost all motivation to do anything and sat on their ass. And to your second question, of course not. Companies use investor money to further their business, the state uses it for various reasons, such as providing free healthcare and doing maintenance etc. One is free money one isn't. If you had to put up a large chunk of your own money and risk losing it all, whatever you gain from doing that is not free money.
2019-03-15 03:01
Investors risk to lose their money? It is not poker mate, they don't. And btw, that's what I do.
2019-03-15 12:08
No such thing as investing. The minute you give your money to someone else it's gambling. If anything can move up and down it's a gamble.
2019-03-15 12:11
its not a gamble if you have more money than other people and whatever stock you invest in will go up faster simply because you bought a lot of it. and other people will then buy it because you bought it and its going up. there are also companies using computers to gamble on the stock market and their models are better at it than people so they definitely get free money.
2019-03-15 13:17
Not everyone is Warren Buffet. the other 99.9 percent of the people are just praying it goes up instead of down.
2019-03-15 13:17
you dont have to be as rich as warren buffett for that to work. you only need to have enough capital to be able to transition into becoming a stock trader and then buy the same stocks as warren buffett. especially if you invest on the longer term, you can easily double your money every business cycle by investing into the right market right after it plummets. just look at some graphs of dow jones or your country's exchange, in my case the AEX, all you have to do is buy when its low and then sell when it doubles upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/t.. see how every time it dips to 200, then goes back up to 400-500 and then flattens off or goes back down. these barriers are a consequence of human psychology and they will be there for a while. if you have a million euros, you can live your whole life without working a day just by following this cycle with a stock tracking fund. buy around 200, sell at 400, you dont have even have to look abroad or know shit about stock trading. the entire system is built for you to succeed.
2019-03-15 13:24
The market could have the bottom drop out of it and maybe take 15 years to recover. That's gambling. The minute you get in and it drops you are now down money so you can sit on it for 15 years hoping to double someday or sell it for a loss.
2019-03-15 13:34
it will never go down for 15 years. the stock market is not real. its a mirage. its jsut a picture of market sentiment. market sentiment will never be negative for 15 years. not unless very serious issues occur. for example if climate change will cause dramatically less rainfall in a country that has an agrarian economy, you shouldnt invest there in a crisis. but apart from natural disaster or world war 3 nothing will keep an economy depressed for 15 years.
2019-03-15 13:37
Great depression?
2019-03-15 13:38
macrotrends.net/1319/dow-jones-100-year-.. drag sliders at the bottom recovery from great depression started after only 3 years the downward slope caused by ww1 lasted longer than that from late 1915 to 1920
2019-03-15 13:44
One of the biggest ponzi schemes in history though but as long as people can make money why not? The real kick in the sack would be if the dollar collapsed and became worthless.
2019-03-15 13:46
well this the market cannot fail thing is 5x as true for america because oil is still sold mostly in dollars and countries stockpile dollars and there is always demand for them, so whenever the american economy performs badly it has this really nice trillion dollar cushion to chillax on.
2019-03-15 13:48
I'm actually holding NEO, you get a dividend and hoping that goes up someday. Crypto is not going to die but maybe only 10 coins will survive, it's like the dotcom bubble. There will be a few that will end up like google and Amazon back then. Just have to get lucky and pick the right ones.
2019-03-15 13:56
maybe as a small thing to spread some risk but i dont think high risk stuff like crypto is a god idea unless you are a day trader. there was a woman in one of my classes last year, every lecture she had an exchange open on her laptop with all those green and red numbers on screen and she just sat there trading making bank while teacher was explaining shit. that was pretty baller.
2019-03-15 13:58
I used to love day trading but the days where you trade 10 hours and lose money kind of get to you after awhile :)
2019-03-15 14:30
i would not be able to sleep ever again if i got into that.
2019-03-15 14:33
I think the best is to just toss some money in to something and check the market once a month. It's hard to not check everyday even if you say you are not going to do it.
2019-03-15 15:00
and even if you have to wait 15 years for it to double thats still a 5% return
2019-03-15 13:38
The main thing I think we both know is that it's mostly controlled and manipulated by the ultra rich who basically never lose. They want other peoples money in there. Think they are getting really greedy this time around, can't believe the market is so high. Bye bye every ones 401K when it crashes, they are investing those. Maybe some people might not live another 10 years for it to recover.
2019-03-15 13:41
right but what those rich people will do is predictable because they have 0 reason to not make the optimal play. so you can just follow them or even predict what they will do and do it earlier its like watching g2 at WESG. they have no reason not to hold the best spots because they dont feel any pressure.
2019-03-15 13:46
the trap is that you can get greedy because you have financial pressure and then you leave your money in too long.
2019-03-15 13:50
whether the stock market keeps going up or down doesnt matter much to traders, in fact if it goes up fast there is usually a bubble somewhere and a lot of traders will lose money when it bursts. what is important to stock traders is being able to accurately predict when stock will go up or down.
2019-03-15 13:25
you can do the same with the dow jones macrotrends.net/1319/dow-jones-100-year-.. lets take like a 50 year period. if you can afford to sit on your money until an economic crisis occurs, you could have for example invested at the end of the crisis in the 1980s and doubled your money in a few years. or get in in 1995 at the start of the dot com craze and double it again in under 5 years. the exception would be if you invested right after the dot com bubble hoping you could double your money and then 2007 happened. but if you got back in in 2008-2009 you would have made 150% dividend in those 10 years. rich people dont have to take big risks with their money, they can just wait for the best moment to invest and be very risk averse and still get huge returns. actually right now i think its getting a bit late to get out. right now all they have to do is wait for the housing market or banking sector to collapse again and then they can double their money again
2019-03-15 13:35
I just wish I would have mined bitcoin when it was like 10 cents a coin :) A friend was bugging me to get in when it was 10 dollars and still did not.
2019-03-15 13:36
look, im telling you here the stock market is basically a pyramid scheme designed for the rich to get richer. over the past century stock markets banks etc have been regulated so that the most egregious violations are illegal and people are fined for those. from money laundering to insider trading, pump and dump schemes, ponzi schemes, etc. bitcoin is not regulated. there are plenty of altcoins that people put money into that turned out to be pyramid schemes. the only moment where i briefly considered buying bitcoin was in late november early december 2017 when it was clear the course would not go down before it hit over 10k on christmas. and right after christmas all the smart people were going to dump their coins for that insane price. again, basic human psychology.

2019-03-15 13:37
its not gambling, you are going to double your money as soon as the bubble bursts. its only a matter of time. here in holland at least housing prices are going up like 10% a year currently, its not sustainable.
2019-03-15 13:42

This thread got super long, so full disclosure - I didn't read the rest before replying to this comment. However, you're absolutely dumb as fuck if you think investors aren't risking their money. Even if you invest in huge companies like Amazon, Alphabet, Facebook etc., you're still risking your money. The risk is much smaller, and so is your potential reward.
2019-03-16 10:43

I saw one of your comments once, thinking you were one of the only smart left-wingers on this site. But confusing dividends with free money?...

Dividends arent free, or everyone would earn it, you earn dividends because, in teory, you have a part of the company. And citizen owning a share of their state doesnt sounds right, without the citizen there wouldnt have a state by itself
2019-03-15 03:53
Dividends are in fact, free. So if no citizen then no state, it pretty much confirm my point. Like in no company owner no company at all.

How the fuck dividends could be free?
2019-03-15 13:20
you own a stock. you take risk by owning the stock. it can go up or down in value. while you hold the stock, you get a share of the profit of the company. this is free. you might have paid for the expectation of dividends when you bought the stock, but you dont take risk directly by receiving dividend
2019-03-15 13:47
lmao, that's like saying receiving pay for your work is free money
2019-03-15 15:30
it is risk free, it only costs time.
2019-03-15 15:30
There is virtually no difference between investing money and investing time when it comes to the risk associated with that investment of money or time not paying off... i'm tired, you're too dumb, bye
2019-03-15 15:35
there is a big difference, you can invest some of your time in a job and get paid a bit for sure, or you can invest money and take risk and either get paid a lot or a little bit or lose money. this difference is why only the rich can afford to live as investors, you need to have enough money saved that you can survive a couple bad investments or an economic crisis. but going by your last sentence you are max 20 years old and you still have to figure all this shit out :) maybe try not to piss people off when you can learn from them. this shit attitude isnt going to help you in life in general assuming that everyone you meet on the internet is stupid, is pretty stupid. maybe in your small town IRL there are few smart people. but the internet is a big place. you run into ppl who are smarter than you every day.

the state is a collection of citizens and rules and procedures and databases.
2019-03-15 13:17
A company is a collection of owners and employes and rules and procedure and databases
2019-03-15 15:27
exactly, so whats the difference between a company and a state? a state doesnt distinguish between the workers and the owners :)
2019-03-15 15:30
Most of them do. In France for instance, income from work are taxed up to 45%, meanwhile financial income are taxed up to 30% maximum.
2019-03-15 15:33
i mean that the state isnt owned by a subset of the people. its owned by the people. it is the people. it is a collective. so everyone is an owner of a share of the state. all you need is a valid id. then you can vote. im not saying its a big share or that it has any value
2019-03-15 15:41
That's what I said in the start, to be able to compare state money "giveaway" to its citizen and dividends of a company.
2019-03-16 02:51
taxation on the private ownership of the means of production doesnt mean that the owners of the means of production have a bigger share of the state, a bigger vote. of course they do in practice because corruption exists. thats one of the reasons why for me the idea of a democratic state logically leads to socialism
2019-03-15 15:42

If you think 99% of the jobs are currently automated and corporations RUN the government, you're fucking retarded. Sure some corporations have a large influence, but they regularly get into trouble. Just in the past year pretty much all big companies had to cough up huge fines for breaching privacy laws etc.
2019-03-16 10:38
more than 99% of the computation done today is automated. it is not done with pen and paper. one neural network of reasonable size involves more computation than what was done by hand in a year on the whole planet before computers existed. trillions of computations. in europe corporations dont literally run the government like in america. but i can tell you that at least in holland, the government only considers what the people want the year before elections. the day after the election, they drop everything and instead of doing what they promised, they create the most business friendly, anti-consumer, anti-middle class policy that they could possibly get away with without being lynched in front of the houses of parliament. why would they do that if they are not actually working for the corporations? why would they create policy that harms the economy long term in favor of small term gains for a small percentage of the population if they have not been bought? and i'll tell you another thing: because of this sucking up to business, our PM mr Rutte has a great career in the EU ahead of him. maybe he'll make it to president.

The argument was 99% of actual JOBS being automated, not whatever you mean by "computation". For example, in the UK there are lots of factory work that could easily be automated, but the unemployment would skyrocket causing huge imbalance in the quality of life for those who aren't educated enough to do anything else. What you're describing works both ways. The reason government tries to help out corporations and businesses as much as possible is because ultimately it's good for the country's economy. It creates jobs for people and brings in tax money. In regard to your second post, you'd be surprised how many multi-billion dollar companies operate on a loss. If I recall correctly, it took Amazon several years to become profitable. It's a long-term strategy. Most businesses nowdays are extremely competitive, so the profit margin has to be tiny. Getting hit with 100s of millions of dollars in fines, or even billions in Google's case, is definitely a pretty big deal for the business.
2019-03-18 21:22
those factory jobs would also take a lot more time without CNC machines
2019-03-19 10:31
amazon is not good for the economy, its a parasite. taxes are set at a level so that smaller businesses can be profitable. amazon is massive and because of their scale and their billion dollars of investment into automation, they can now outcompete those smaller businesses with lower profit margins and still make more profit. if that efficiency was to the benefit of all society, it would be great. but its not. its for jeff bezos. not sure what amazon has to do with what i told you about multinationals intentionally breaking the law for profit. amazon afaik isnt constantly breaking the law. theyre just using a giant competitive advantage in the retail market that Jeff Bezos only got by virtue of how deep his pockets are. sadly thats not illegal.

Amazon was just an example of a huge company that is barely profitable. I'm pretty sure YouTube and Google overall isn't profitable. They haven't released revenue data so far, but if you think about it logically, what they're doing is incredibly expensive and they rely mostly on ads for monetization.
2019-03-19 11:24
google makes billions every year?
2019-03-19 20:56
the fines that corporations like google and facebook pay are way LESS than the money they make by breaking the law. its just a deal between the govt and these multinationals. they get to break the law but they pay a bit of extra tax and then its fine. no one goes to prison. its a very nice form of corruption where no one can possibly be put in prison because they dont need to ever meet to communicate how to set it up. its all implicit. google knows that if they break the law the govt will rather blackmail them for a couple billion than sue. and the govt knows that google will pay if they dont stop google from breaking the law and only give them a fine after. the only people who get hurt is everyone who doesnt work for google and facebook etc. and isnt a member of parliament, because their private data is taken illegally and they are not compensated for it with kickbacks and nice jobs in boards of directors after they are done being members of parliament. btw i know for sure that google etc. are still making money in europe. otherwise they would have closed their branches here and ignore the european market.

I can see it work. If everybody is given the same sum of money each month, then it will mean a lot less administration which will save a lot of money. All that are currently employed to give money to those in need and controlling only they get money, those people will no longer be payed to do so and it will simplify a lot of things. Also since everyone gets the same, this will mean nobody feeling cheated and nobody will try to cheat as there is nothing to cheat about. It will also means that some people currently so desperate for money they resolve to stealing will no longer have to do so = less crime, less need for police, courts and prison = more money saved that can go towards paying for the payout to all.

It's a zero sum game. If everyone gets something, the outcome is basically the same as if no one got it. I can guarantee, as soon as government starts handing out free money the price of everything is going to start going up, since people now have more disposable income. No one is going to be able to live comfortably off of just $1000/month, so it won't solve homelessness, poverty and reduce crime. It might help very slightly, but it won't come even close to solving it.
2019-03-16 10:40
if prices go up by a lot, then you can just save up some of that free money you get and start a business that has a slightly lower profit margin and then you will get all the sales and the competition will also have to go down a bit

Most businesses already operate on tiny profit margins. They can do so efficiently due to the scale. If you start your own tiny business, there's no chance in hell you'd be able to compete.
2019-03-18 21:24
youre arguing here that if govt gives people basic income that the profit margins will go up. then you can start a business with a smaller profit margin. the only way what you say would work is if everybody raised their prices by the exact same % every day if the dutch govt implemented basic income today, the price of grain on the international market wouldnt go up a lot. it wouldnt immediately become more expensive to make bread.

He said nothing about an innovative idea. He expects someone to save up and start a small business that competes with Amazon because having $1k given to you for free somehow allows you to have a smaller profit margin while still remaining profitable.

"A Universal Basic Income at this level would permanently grow the economy by 12.56 to 13.10 percent—or about $2.5 trillion by 2025" Does he realize that 1k/month for everyone above 18 would cost about 3 trillion for a year? That's a great investment...

good idea and would provide alot of benefits like lower diseas rate, lower criminality and would pay off in the end.

We pay so much but we will get a pension that is 60% less then it should. 800€ means today maybe enough to survive. But I will get in 40 years 800€ as well then the 800€ not enough for food in a month

It really depends how much you earn tho Here in Latvia I know a dude whos like 60 now, and his pension will be around 2000 euros, IN LATVIA. Reason for that is that he earned insane amounts of money during 1980-90, promoting comunism in media.
