Laissez Faireholm Regional Message Board
Evil was banned because he blocked me. He blocked me because I defended a girl that would not add him on Facebook.
He then wished the girl would die.
Incentives and risk are the problem for GOEs far more than employees.
who said they wouldn't? the better question is why doesn't the private sector do the same instead of pretending a manager that may very well know shít all about the field in reality is best?
Curious: would consensus decision-making be a preferable alternative to representative democracy in a theoretical libertarian state?
Exactly, I'm all for making new jobs by coming up with simple labour positions, but if you're going to put someone in the managerial position, at least make sure they can do the job they're ordering other people to do in the first place.
I've personally been a bigger fan of direct democracy over representative, but I'd probably go with representative because consensus decision making might mean a lot of people, even the majority of people, may not get a say in politics unless they are a part of some council which is making the decision in the first place.

Quayle - big shots from the business world often hired to run government owned enterprises.
The honest ones either turn down the job (no matter how much money they are offered) or soon resign in disgust. The crooks take the money - and hold the jobs for years. It makes no difference - the problem with a state owned enterprise is it basic nature (for example that it does not go bankrupt if makes losses over years) not who runs it.
And formal private ownership is not always free enterprise either.
Let us say you have an industry where the big enterprises do not go bankrupt (really bankrupt - close their door) because they are bailed out, and where basic business practices are actually (behind closed doors) set by the government - "we want you to lend more money in inner city areas - and we will punish you if you do not".
There is such as industry - it is called "banking".
If these principles (no real bankruptcy and political direction of the enterprise) is made general then you have the "German form of socialism" (as Ludwig Von Mises called it) where the companies are formally privately owned, but they are not really privately owned - the "owners" are really just (highly paid) "shop managers".
This was done in the First World War ("War Socialism") in Germany and in the 1930s.
In theory companies remained privately owned - even the managers were often the same people who had been managers before.
But everything was politically directed.
After World War II the new (free market) economy minister was approached by various "businessmen".
"What is the government policy in this industry?"
We have no policy in any industry - make your own decisions.
"But what will happen if we make the wrong decisions?"
Then you will go bankrupt - your business will not longer exist and you will have to find a job.
This is what a real free market is about.
