The big bailouts was a little taste of what a big government will do in an effort to stop free markets from operating correctly and how nationalization really works. Just take a look at the GM deal among other deals and you get an idea of what nationalization will look like in a more subtle way. A way that appears it was not a nationalization but a bailout.
Healthcare and insurance may be the first to be nationalized
Looking forward as much of what the U.S. does today is not sustainable, we thought about what will happen eventually as very little of this can or will sustain for the long term. It’s like getting down to the last million of a trust fund and trying to milk it as much as you can before its all over. In this case there really is no milking, just a ton of spending and unsustainable products out there. Whether you like them or stand behind them or not, they simply cannot sustain according to economists. As that point of unsustainability moves closer we were thinking what would most likely get nationalized first and it was clear that the health industry would be one of the first to be nationalized. It would be a close race with the insurance industries, especially the health insurance industries. They may no longer have the ability to continue on with what they are doing currently and the need for nationalization will take place.
Social media and technology will most likely stay private ran, just forced to be information contractors similarly to how it is now. So all in all really no difference from nationalization, except tech savvy guys will run the show, just like privatized prison systems.
Banks, Investment houses and stock market
Is so corrupt already that it is the same thing as being nationalized, however if banking does collapse or the market gets slammed like before, either hefty bailouts will hit again or a swift nationalization may occur. What happened when Venezuela nationalized banks? The citizens lost their money or money was fully devalued first and then nationalized similar to that of GM. What happened when Panama nationalized the banks in the 80’s? Anyone with hefty deposits came to find out it was all gone. IE limiting of withdrawals, conditioning of individuals to ultimately accept such a nationalization as they did in both Venezuela and Panama. Limiting withdrawals in Italy and Russia as of recent.
Banks are less safe than ever in todays volatile jobless declining market. Society is turning cash and third world living is around the corner. Well it’s really already here but the effects are not really felt yet by masses. As inflation sets in and product sizes shrink even more or necessity prices begin to rise tremendously the people will feel it. Changes like this takes time and moves slowly into the system. The conditioning effect slowly moves forward as well. Right now people are getting conditioned into part time jobs if that. many opt to not even work for such low wages.
Mortgage companies are another strong possibility as many cannot sustain. Hedge funds bought up the decent foreclosures, and are creating a rental society, property rights may begin to get stung further on down the road. This is going to be one hell of a ride. Nationalization has gotten big talk in countries like France in the recent times as well as other western Euro zones. America may be on line in the direction it’s headed it seems.
