    I just showed you how there would be competition! You can't just deny that without an argument. You're being dishonest.

    Funny that, it's the laissez faire monkeys who don't understand that competition can only survive in a regulated environment. Otherwise you get corporate oligarchy where only the executives benefit and everyone else suffers.

    Lets hope you have your Buy N Large shares purchased in advance.
    If this is the case, why do skilled workers get paid more than unskilled workers?

    As said, much of their social unrest guarantees the success of their infrastructure - keeps the government under the hammer so to speak.

    The other half of it is due to poorly integrated cultural minorities that stir up **** because they can't drop their archaic blood faith and embrace Enlightenment attitudes.

    Does poverty still exist there?

    If a private monopoly controls the most convienient routes between point A and B, another company is pretty much unable to compete because the roads they contruct are less convienient and thus will not see as much use as the more convienient ones.

    Capitalism is not the answer to everything.

    If this is the case, why do skilled workers get paid more than unskilled workers?
    Because we live in a regulated economy and not a Laissez Faire one? Not to mention there is a cap on how unskilled your workers can be before they become financially undesirable.

    Yup, but last I checked France was 5 spots ahead of the US on the HDI.

    Poverty will exist no matter what, the goal is to provide the opportunity for people to move out of poverty as easily as possible if they so desire.

    Really. And you're basing this off what? An Atheist convention?
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
