    I consider myself more of a neoclassicist, but I'll accept a hodgepodge - austrian, Ricardian, even very small doses of Keynesianism.

    I've heard it described as "socialism for the well connected". Like, From each according to his means, to each according to his relative position in the ruling party.

    People who truly advocate for employee ownership have never owned a business. It is such an absurdity to consider. Probably why you don't see it that often. I mean, nothing is stopping businesses from doing that now, so why don't they?

    Your right I need to provide more detail rather than just talking. I need to do more research. Thanks for the criticism.

    In his own definition, Mussolini stated that fascism was anti-socialism, anti-capitalism, anti-socialism, anti-democracy. I generally just view it as a political religion.
