    And here's his talk......................

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIhOXCgSunc]A TED Talk on Income Inequality by Nick Hanauer - YouTube[/ame]

    He actually makes a lot of sense, because it's not really the venture capitalists who create jobs, it's the demand set up by the middle class for a product that causes someone else to see the need, THEN go to someone for money to start up a business, and the business will succeed if the demand for the product from the general population is sufficient to generate a profit.

    So, if you want to know who the real job creators are, it's us as the middle class consumers, not the venture capitalists, because all they do is sit on their money and draw off the interest.

    Do you people really think that it's the top 1 percent that actually creates jobs?

    If you agree with supply and demand economics and capitalism, you'd KNOW that it's not the uber wealthy that creates jobs, it's actually the middle class with money to spend.

    We're a CONSUMER (not corporate) driven economy. The only reason businesses exist is to supply a demand.

    Unfortunately.. that's the narrative touted by so many politicians and I continue to be amazed how it goes unchallenged.

    The only job you can do is a blow job of the Left. As many times as it has been explained on this site that consumer demand does not create jobs you are still playing that tired old song.
    SOme people never learn.

    How does consumer demand NOT create jobs ya fucking moron? If a company makes a product that the people like, the demand for that product goes up, resulting in hiring more workers to increase the output to meet the demand.

    That is how jobs are REALLY created.

    I enjoy it when the economically retarded start economic threads.

    Google 'capital formation' and educate yourself on what savings and investment mean to an economy.

    you are suffering a critical thinking fail.I can scream for ice cream but unless that guy milks the cow, then pays to have to trucked to processing, then packing, then distribution to my mouth. Demand drives demand, simply, the demand is fulfilled by who and how?
