Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
Guess I'm never buying Hyundai.
Yeah, I saw this ad. And I thought "climate justice" was bad. It seems "justice" is the new buzzword now.
My parents purchased a Hyundai vehicle. When the vehicle hit 70K in mileage, all kinds of problems started to happen. Luckily, an Act of God event happened to the vehicle, it was hit by a ricochet bolt of lightning and fried all the electronics in the vehicle. True story. Parents received a check from the insurance company for the total loss of the vehicle, and purchased a Toyota.
Teaching financial literacy is a positive step. As to the rest..... Vote? Donate? WTF? How about not walking around in public grabbing muh dikk. That would also be a good first step.
My God, I want to puke after listening to that video. The thought that such a thing as "Wealth Justice" is even a thing makes me hate these people even more. Just because someone is a harder worker than you (or went into a STEM field), doesn't mean you get to complain about a so called "wealth gap", it just signals to your own incompetence (and laziness).
I'm sick and tired of people always trying to get people to be advocates for stuff. How about teaching people who don't have money to make better financial decisions and to learn a damn skill that the world will pay money for? I know a kid who was holding down an under-the-table job when he was five f***ing years old trying to keep his brother and sister fed because his mom was a damn junkie. He's been in the Army for a couple of years now and he's getting certified as a master diesel technician. He's figured it out. Advocating for handouts doesn't do shit for people. Teach them to get a damn job and they'll turn out better.
What a load of rubbish. The path to wealth and financial independence isn't a mystery (and never has been)...things like get an education, accept responsibility for your own life, work hard, take risks, embrace short-term delayed gratification in favour of long term benefits. There are no guarantees but if it's going to happen for you it will probably be because of these personal choices. But of course these days all of these virtues are seen as "racist". Instead, as this video shows, seek policies and money from government, seek money from donors, and base it all on the idea that you are part of a victim group and all your problems come from external sources rather than repeated and ongoing bad personal choices on how you live your life.
No,wealth justice is putting in a full day's work and getting to keep most of your money, like 90% or better.
“But let me offer you my definition of social justice: I keep what I earn and you keep what you earn. Do you disagree? Well then tell me how much of what I earn belongs to you - and why?”― Walter E. Williams, All It Takes Is Guts
