Economics for dummies like me

While reading through Andrea's latest posts, I found a link to
a good article written by Murr Brewster on her view of the
economic situation in the US ... should wealth be more fairly
distributed in society by means of taxation, for example, and
should there be free health care for everyone?

One of the main news stories today in the UK has been the huge
bonuses being awarded to nine top bankers in the RBS (a £28m pot
of shares being awarded to them). I think the Government should
put a stop to bonuses being awarded on this scale ... I think
surplus funds like this should be paid back to customers (to
to give them better returns on their investments or reduced bank
charges), and also should be spent on helping our UK charities.

". . should be spent on helping our UK charities." You would stand a better chance teaching hippos how to fly!

The greedy, grasping bankers are 'hand in glove' with the politicians anyway.
