Saw what you did there

I have been reading and studying economics for many years, and I have come to a conclusion. The current economy of Belgium is not working for the great majority of Belgians, but Socialism is not the answer. I believe the answer lies in co-operatives, private businesses operated and owned by their workers. This allows for a high degree of fairness in the economic system while still allowing the market system to prosper and keep its economic advantages. In that spirit, I produce this bill. ((If we have no central bank, we'll assume this bill does nothing until we create one))
M. Wolff, I note that concept of co-operative banks was first raised by the Fabian Socialists in the United Kingdom some 10 years ago, and has been actively advocated by the Bruges chapter for a number of years now, although our position in opposition has prevented any implementation of such a scheme.
I and other Fabians strongly support your Bill. Please feel free to come to our meetings should you wish to discuss any of the other modern ideas of Socialism in our changing world. I think you will find that Socialists are not quite as scary as the RU makes us out to be. We are always be happy to work with intelligent men such as yourself in making Belgium better.
