Incidentally I am personally in favour of a mixed economy circa 90% communist and I0% capitalist but I am calling it luxury communism for now - sounds nice and tangy

Did you nick the nice and tangy title from Ash Sarkar because by a very strange coincidence she calls it exactly the same
I love the employment of the adjective there.

It's a term in common usage these days I think. Much like capitalism, it does not have a 100% fixed meaning ATM.

ATM I reckon there should be some wage disparity between particularly pleasurable/dangerous/unpleasant jobs. Also some sectors could be associated with very high maximum earnings, such as the arts and development of green technology/theory.

Agree toilet cleaners and such should earn a 4 figure weekly salary. :coffee:
