It would also help with inflation by preventing the exact situation of "too many dollars chasing too few goods" (which will happen when you have empty shelves).
Just realize the lengths capitalists will go to to prevent workers from gaining power--they'd literally sacrifice the currency and huge chunks of their wealth rather than give in.
And this is what's really sick about capitalism, is that it creates these self-fulfilling prophecies through individualistic behavior.
You see the capitalist class screeching about inflation--their policies in the workplace, in that quest for ever more profits, are creating it.
It's time like these where a little bit of economic PLANNING could really come in handy...
And I think they could do so in the here and now with some of the WWII era acts that allow the government to take over certain branches of manufacturing.
It's an imperfect mechanism, but it could help--while also sending a message to employers...
it seems boring but you would not believe the kind of tax deductibles quest-giving racks me
i got a bunch of raises right before montana raised from 5.15 to 7.50, and they told me flat out that the minimum increase was going to wash out my raises. I was so pissed lol
