    Do you make a product, sell a service, or hire more employees based on:

    A- why the fuck not? I've got money to waste

    B- because hiring people will get me into heaven and

    C) hiring people to serve no one and make me no money is my hobby (I love wealth redistribution and giving to charity is too simple and straightforward)

    D- because there exists market demand and I can make money- or at least it looks like there's money to be made

    ?

    I kind of think that is what is happening now (past 3 years). Unions have been broken and the government has almost no leverage (That it wants to use anyhow) against private firms.

    They are pretty much calling the shots.

    Step A - Put in elected officials that will do your bidding.
    Step B - Break the Unions.
    Step C - Privatize profit and socialize risk.
    Step D - Get rid of all regulations.
    Step E - Bring back the monopoly.

    We are between C and D now.

    It can be an instructive example when we teach our children about feudalism

    I'm all for D. Buyers? Educate yourself...learn to read. Can you say TORT?

    Albeit B is a great option. They are fucking dinosaurs.

    And as to C? When has profit not been private unless you have a tyrannical gubmint in for profit [Which they shouldn't be but are for control of the masses]?

    :lol:

    D of course, but the rub is in that in a consumer import based economy..
    Well people are pretty much buying all they can now ie market saturation.
    The only way to increase demand is to either create more jobs or pay the existing workers more money. But without increased demand neither is viable....
    And business that depend on excess consumer spending are folding as people cut back on spending, further worsening the situation.

    Quite a hole we have worked ourselves into.

    Low cost production is what moved jobs overseas. Globalization free trade, NAFTA, SHAFTA, etc.

    Americans cannot maintain their current lifestyles and will be continuing to reduce them in the future. Try living here on Wages paid in India, China, Malasia, etc.

    Govt regulations and such are just a right wing hyperbole of avoiding the truth.
