The Economics of Bernie Sanders
- Published on Nov 24, 2019
- Bernie Sanders, a democratic candidate for president in 2016 and once again a major contender for president in the upcoming 2020 election. Bernie sanders is also a long serving independent senator for Vermont so that means when we are looking at his economic policies we have more than just campaign promises to go off of, we have a long and tenured history in politics.
Bernie is a self described democratic socialist, which is a big claim to make as a career politician in the united states, a country that takes great pride in its free wheeling capitalistic market. But that’s the first big distinction that needs clarity. Socialism tends to conjur up imagery of soviet era soup lines, gulags, and inefficient state run industries. But surely this isn’t the future that Bernie Sanders is advocating for? To best understand his policies, perhaps it is best to understand his self appointed label.
