Tutor description

There was a professor who believed in the powers of the free market but one year his entire class believed that socialism was the answer. To show them this was not the case he said that he would average the class grade out. The next week the students who had studied hard became angry when they saw that they had gotten a B because other student’s hadn’t put as much into it. So they decided that wouldn’t work as hard because the score was averaged and so it wouldn’t really matter. Well that week the class average fell to an F! (Made To Stick) This is just like socialism, socialist take from everyone and spread the products out evenly. As this story demonstrates, socialism fails, however the United States is currently implementing more and more socialist policies. We will look at 3 main socialistic policies that are happening right now in the US, but before we go any farther we need to define socialism.

We will look at 3 main socialistic policies that are happening right now in the US, but before we go any farther we need to define socialism. Socialism is defined as, "any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods." ( http://www.merriam-webster.com/) Now that we know what socialism is? Actually lets rephrase the definition so that it is easier to understand. Socialism is basically Robin Hood, socialist rob the rich to give to the poor. In an ideal world this would make everyone middle class but because it creates an incentive for the rich and the poor not to work it actually makes everyone poor. Not
