It is honestly like Ajax learned all his economics from Monopoly and never realized real life doesn't have to be a zero sum game... Surely life would be better if we just bankrupted everyone else, amirite?

That'd be super ironic-awesome since the game was meant to be a socialist tool to teach us about the pitfalls of capitalism.

I was actually thinking sort of the same thing after reading his horribly ignorant post. I started thinking “maybe white supremacists believe the way they do, in part, because they don’t have a grasp of very basic economic principles”. It’s pretty obvious now that I actually think about it for a sec but Ajax’s post demonstrates such a horrible understanding of basic economic policy that every single point in his short post is abominablely stupid. No wonder he hates immigrants and foreigners, he is just simple. It’s cracking me up that he is now defending being taxed (heavily)because it’s a white guy in charge instead of a black man.

Funny, I must have missed that argument in the conservative argument newsletter.
I, like you, always made up arguments for other people..like how you believe brown people showed up and offered to work on farms for more money than they ever had an opportunity to earn before, but also quickly realized that in a free market they could undercut competition.
Thank the lawd our country's history never had white immigrants that worked the land for "comparatively low wages".

Oh, no worries. Just stay right there. I’ll bet that you’ll see this argument coming up again in just a second. Matter of fact, riggghht about ... now:

Sure. I suppose that if we claim that a population of laborers exists sufficient to undercut other laborers (that threshold likely being reached when we start to have to use more than one hand to count), and we get rid of any and all minimum wage laws, then we will realize the conservative wet dream of everyone trying to undercut everyone else. But, as I’ve asked you about 43 times already - and as you are too afraid to answer - who really sets that wage? The employer, or the employee?
