Never let stoned hippies discuss economics

The Communist Parties of various European countries have been holding an international convention, at which they debated how to combat inequality worldwide. In particular they wish to eradicate inequality between rich Westerners and poorer people in the Third World.

Spokesman John Lenin explained their plan. "Yeah, man! So what we're going to do, is that we'll get rid of all the banks except one. We'll just have one bank in the whole world. Then everyone in the world will put their money into it. At the end of every day, the bank will work out the average amount of money per person in the whole world, and will automatically adjust it so that everyone's bank balance will be the same. It's a totally fool-proof plan, yeah!"

"So if some rich banker goes out and earns a few million, he'll wake up the next day to find it has all been shared out amongst poor people. And all those poor people who work hard all day for a few pennies, they'll find they have a few more pennies. And people who spend all their money will find they'll get it all back the next day."

"It really is a flawless plan and the only way to completely permanently eradicate all inequality. Because inequality really is the greatest problem in the world."
