Response to Her Sister (Reply #26)

Fri May 27, 2016, 02:34 PM

27. I found his saying that to be very weird, as if he couldn't be bothered with mundane money matters.

Isn't his whole campaign about money, who has it, who doesn't have it, and why? It seems to me that he ought to have educated himself a bit more about money and numbers (math), if he wanted to prescribe cures for "income inequality." Or does he just want to spout words, without any intention of getting something done? Getting something done about money requires knowledge of money and financial transactions. He seems to be better versed in Marxist theory than he is in economics or finance. Maybe he just never bothered to study this stuff, since he regarded finance as a corrupt profession dominated by evil capitalists. For my part, I enjoy learning about everything, even things that fall outside of my talents or interests. I am curious about what makes things work. But, if you want to criticize banking and finance, you have to begin by thoroughly understanding the system and how it operates. Blaming billionaires for everything lacks nuance, and it doesn't really accomplish anything.
