Manifesto: Greed is good

A vote for spikebrennan is a vote for capitalism. 

Should you place your trust in me, I (in my role as Government) intend to award each Investor $1000, and to provide the opportunity to invest in one or more promising new ventures!

How exactly are we to be able to enforce this promise on you? I’ve heard too many lies from politicians to really trust them any more; what makes you think that your manifesto promises are any more realistic than anyone else’s?

“...intend…”

What promise?

More specifically: there would be a number of Corporations, each of which would have its own Board of Directors and By-Laws.  Investors may become Shareholders of Corporations.  Corporations can engage in business to try to make money, can pay dividends to their Shareholders, can merge with other Corporations, and can dissolve.  People who like this sort of thing will find this the sort of thing they like.
