Falácias populistas *

"I don't have my finger on the pulse of corruption in China, but I think most people on the ground would say that as China was emerging from communism it was a very regulated society and therefore it was very corrupt.

But as they have deregulated the economy, there just aren't as many opportunities for people to be corrupt. China has become a more efficiently lubricated capitalist economy."


"Well, shutting borders will help a few wealthy people preserve their wealth. But there's no evidence that I know that shows shutting down borders helps your economy grow. Look at what happened with India during the first three decades after their independence, where they essentially wanted to keep imports out so that they could develop their internal industries. None of those industries became engines for economic growth. They were all inefficient and served India very poorly. It wasn't until things opened up that the local economies prospered. History is pretty strong on that question."
As ideias de "desvalorização fiscal", saída do euro para "desvalorizar moeda" não resultam, nem na Índia, nem no Reino Unido como recorda o Anti-comuna.
