C'mon todd, all you have to do is take human behavior/reaction out of any plan/theory and it will work perfectly.
No one is suggesting removing human behavior or reactions from the equation. In fact, both socialism and capitalism rely on human behavior and reactions in order to function properly on any level. When the proper incentives are put in place, either system can be seen as at least moderately effective (depending upon one's viewpoint).
I had planned to address the many errors in bis's many analyses when I had time, but I can see right now it would be fruitless.
Feel free to try, but as you suggest, it is probably fruitless. In the same way an armchair quarterback may think he can tell a real quarterback how to play better, I'm sure many people would love to play armchair economist here. I'm glad someone realizes that is pointless.
And to bis, claiming you understand a lot about economics doesn't make it so. It's merely an unsupported assertion (like many of your points). It becomes even less supported the more you spout about the theory absent of human interaction within it.
There is no way to support my knowledge of economics if you are determine to think otherwise. This is merely an internet message board - I have nothing to prove to any of you about my personal background in economics (or anything else for that matter). If you want to think I'm lying, that's up to you, but I'm telling the truth.
My supposed unsupported assertions have enough support to defeat all arguments against them so far, so I'd say they are doing quite fine. If anyone had actually presented an argument that threatened something I've said, I might support it more, but I'm not going to go out of my way to provide extra support when it isn't needed.
Finally, I never said human interaction was taken out of the theory. As I said, human behavior is a key component of any economic system, including both capitalism and socialism. In fact both systems when executed within the proper framework will provide incentives to modify collective human behavior in order to maximize their effectiveness. Most Americans understand how this works in capitalism because it is a system they are familiar with. Most do not understand how it works in socialism simply because they aren't familiar with it. It sounds like you're in the same boat.
You might want to do some research and read more about socialism and specifically about how it uses human interaction and behavior as a key part of its proper function. Try to think outside of the box of capitalism. If you actually do the research and read, look at incentives within a proper socialist system which are designed to encourage behavior that supports the socialist system. Capitalism does the same thing but gives incentives which encourages behavior which supports the capitalist system. That's how both systems work - but the incentives and the behaviors are different when it comes to the human element.
I could go on about this all day, but I have other things to do. I'm just trying to provide some food for thought.
