Economic Theory? I was sitting in Psych the other day and a thought occured to me. Capitalism is based on the transfer of goods and services for something, whether that something is money or another good or service. But the system becomes inefficient when people save extensively and spend very little. So I thought of an idea. Suppose an economic system in which the populace was somehow made to spend X% of their income on goods and services. Would such a system put more money into everyone's pocket than standard Capitalism does? Does it have too much state control like Communism/Socialism/Mercantalism? Thoughts/Questions welcome, but be warned I haven't really thought of much beyond the basic tenets of the system.
