What Socialism Has Done to the World's Economy

Nobody in the Western world has been willing to admit that it is the socialist policies of their governments that have led to the dire economic problems the world now faces. Sir Mervyn King, governor of the Bank of England, revealed how severe the crisis is after the decision was made by the bank’s Monetary Policy Committee to put 75 billion of newly created money into the economy in a desperate effort to stave off a new credit crisis and a UK recession.

The Daily Telegraph quoted the governor: “This is the most serious financial crisis we’ve seen, at least since the 1930s, if not ever. We’re having to deal with very unusual circumstances, but to act calmly to this and to do the right thing.”

“The world economy has slowed, America has slowed, China has slowed, and of course particularly the European economy has slowed,” he said. “The world has changed and so has the right policy response.”

How did we get into this mess? By following the siren song of the socialists who think that the private sector and the taxpayer can pay for more and more socialist programs. And they think that whipping the capitalist horses that drive the economy is the way to get them to support more and more socialist spending. Obamacare is the program that will finally kill the American Golden Goose. Americans will be reduced to a survivalist economy.
