Economy

[Top of Page]

Economy - overview: Economics is a tool of the bankers and capitalists to explain in what way they can indebt the people, and so make them a slave to this system of exploitation. The very resources that the working classes produce is then taken from them in exchange for a fraction of their worth to the capitalist land-owners and bankers, and must be bought back from the same at an inflated price.
The Pataki Peoples' State will have no part in providing ANY statistics that might enable these bankers and capitalists to salivate over the productiveness of the Pataki people, so as to heighten their desire to take what belongs to the Pataki people, and sell it back to them at inflated price. Therefore, in this section we shall describe the TRUE worth of the Pataki Peoples State, the achievements that demonstrate the true worth of the state.

Transnational Issues

[Top of Page]

Disputes - intranational: The Pataki Peoples' State occupies approximately 35% of the Peoples Republic of Rovens, and as it represents a shining example of the benefits of a non-capitalist structural system, it is opposed by many within the Rovenian government. The Pataki Peoples' Army is negotiating with the government to establish a final peace, and an acknowledgement of the right to existance of the Pataki Peoples' State, of the rights of the Pataki people. Until that time, there will always be disputes with the Rovenian state.
