The Idea was born in the Greek Crisis.

The bureaucracy is vast and slow, and corrupt

Private Companies could do taxes and education, even police probably for the same price but would much be efficient.

In Balkan companies you work up to 60 hours. Just the state does not work.

The Yugoslawian Market Socialism (Titoism) worked better then Oligarchy, the Shops were full of Goods produced in the Country.

Corrupt Capitalism leads to Oligarchy.

Romania and Bulgaria had soviet communism... even this worked for the most of society better.

I would agree that communism worked better (in terms of economics) for those countries at that time than capitalism.
And that today things in these countries are not clearly better than they were under communism (although that could be the subject of debate, there have been a few trade-offs).
That said, things in these countries are not all that good economically.

Yes, interestingly Yugoslavia was cited as the best working example of Socialism/Communism. (Guess a little bit of fascism got something accomplished there)
It's amazing how quickly an all out war and disintegration of the country into smaller separate states in conflict with each other can erase all that.

I'm not saying that quality of life in Yugoslavia was as high as countries like, say, France were in the 1990s, but it was better than most Eastern European countries today, and had a lot of stability.


I think we're getting off-topic from the first post, but you are the one who started this thread topic so you are the one who gets to decide what the topics of discussion are.
