I was thinking this interesting idea. What if you put entire countries on the stock market.
If the country is run like a business to please it's shareholder then wouldn't it mean better management and bigger surpluses?
Governments couldn't make up figures and would try to have the most cost effective solution to a problem (reading a story that the VIC government spent 80k+ for new furniture!)
You couldn't have phoney economies ie. The USA
Instead of letting governments run the economy, let the free market.
It's probably the only way you could have a perfect free market - would stop all these BS bailouts
I'm sure there are holes in this but what do you reckon?
