I think you're mistaken on the values we both have. Pacific values are Ro'ahni (Thalasian island language, roughly translates to "peace" or "to be calm/chill"), the search for justice and cooperation, and free pursuit of happiness. Nordic-Byzantine values are as follows: Racism, alcoholism, chauvinism, and a blind refusal to accept the right way of the future.
And if I'm the 14 year old who is obsessed with weed, you're the 37 year old neckbeard who thinks his best use of time is to argue with the 14 year old and threaten any women who decides to speak her mind on the Internet.

Oh sh!t. This is the kind of issue I've been fearing.
[spoiler=The Issue]
The price of most foodstuffs in Thalasus spiked recently, resulting in bread riots. Terrified government advisers have put forward economic plans to stabilize the economy.

The Debate

1. "This cannot happen again," panics Minister of the Economy Clint Delauter while wiring assets to an overseas bank. "We need to lower unemployment and control food prices if we want things to quiet down again. Major public works projects would ensure that the poor find good jobs and aren't just loafing around, stewing in their own juices. They could build bridges and beautify parks and organize public events. To be honest, what they work on doesn't matter; they could dig holes and fill them up again for all I care. The important thing is controlling poverty; food prices will eventually sort themselves out."

2. "The real problem is foreign control of our economy," concludes your Labor Minister, Bruce Love, while absentmindedly combing his beard. "Multinationals that don't care about Thalasians oversupply trivial things like fast food instead of investing in our critical national infrastructure. Only indicative planning can begin to properly direct the economy towards essential production while maintaining the profit motive. With the commanding heights under government control, we don't have to worry about capital flight the next time recession looms."

3. "What socialistic nonsense," retorts Finance Minister Mohammed Harishchandra, taking a break from scowling at jobless protesters. "That food price shock wasn't because of too little government meddling. The real cause was bad planning, a side-effect of half-baked subsidies. The market is smarter than a bunch of bureaucrats, so we should cut all subsidies propping up enterprises that don't turn a real profit. And if some people still can't find bread, then let them eat cake."

4. "Don't listen to that imperialist lackey," interrupts Rochelle Peters, a rioter throwing stale bread at you. "It's not enough to have national planning; we need WORLD economic planning. We should retool from making worthless fuzzy dice and sex-enhancement drugs and instead provide nutrition and medicines for needy peoples the world over. Perhaps you think the pig-dog capitalists will never let it happen, but I am hopeful. A rising dough lifts all nations, after all. It's time to end hunger once and for all."

The thing is, all options make sense to me and can fit my goals. But I'm afraid picking one will have a huge negative effect on either my economy or my civil rights. Thoughts?[/spoiler]


I'd have to say that the 1st option was probably the best. Stimulus spending has been shown to work as far as reducing poverty goes, whereas a command economy a la the Soviet Union is deeply inefficient because there's a deep disconnect between what makes for good strategic goods and good consumer goods. Command economies work when you're on a war footing, but for peacetime a more laissez-faire system functions better.
The third option is more 'woo corporations, the poor are poor because they're lazy, improve worker productivity and pay them less' which sadly mirrors the Real World. It's austerity all over again, and we've seen how that works in the Eurozone.
The fourth option is wishful thinking from a protestor that will drive up tax rates 30%.
The 1st option is the least terrible of them all.

I resigned and my economy jumped 15 points. It was a magical day.

Calm thine tits.
Don't have a rack attack.
Prevent a mammary calamity.
And then look into the enlightened Pentagrian model. We'll be more than happy to help any nations transition to our social policy platforms.

God, you people know how to grind mein gears. Your Roheebiejeebies mean nothing to me, and i don't understand why you didn't get rid of those island savages when you had the chance. Women in Escanthea know their place. In fact, everyone in Escanthea knows their place: To serve the empire however the Emperor says they should. We give these people a pleasant life under our guidance. In return we expect them to return the favor by serving us. If the "way of the future" is to let the blind, ignorant populace have fat bureaucrats and trade unions ruled by mafia bosses control their lives then i want no part in it. You call us racist? Why, because we don't have trade unions give our citizens the day off so that migrant laborers can risk their lives for pennies doing the same job? No, we simply believe in a strong nation that isn't subject to the whims of foreign businessmen who line their pockets with our money. Chauvinism? Because we don't buy into the feminazi bullshit? Alcoholism? Was it not you who was praising their lax drug laws? Alcohol was a drug the last time i checked. Speaking of alcohol, what is it with that fermented fruity piss water you people drink all the time? A good beer is far superior to that sh*t you call Thalasian wine. Since when have i threatened women on the internet, Thalasus? I've seen your new head of state, and that...thing looks more like a man than Ashton ever did.

This argument went waaaay beyond democracy vs. monarchy/dictatorship. I apologize for that. :P

:D
