    Which market would be best for the USA and the world?

    A) 6,000 Chinese Aristocrats with $7 Billion each to spend or

    B) 7 Billion Chinese middle class with $60,000 each to spend?

    What are the implications of the thought you just had there?!? :eek:

    (A) is the correct answer because they would build companies and hire the 7 billion who need jobs and create an engine. If you chose (B) they would spend it and that would be that.

    I believe the world benefits more from "B". Supply of housing does not create demand.

    do the rich ever put money into their own pockets and just blow it? It always seems to be the thought that when rich people get money they run out and create jobs as an auto-function. But the average joes will be irresponsible with their money always.

    where does this come from?

    Whichever you answer...........the most talented, innovative people will end up with more money and property anyway.

    Give 1 billion people $60,000 each. I bet in 5 years, 10% of that 7 billion will create products or services that are in such demand that they end up getting a lot of the other's money.

    It's life folks. Some people are more talented and innovative than others. The true evil is the ones who want a government to use threat of violence to then take by force the fruits of those people's labor.

    Rich folks create jobs.

    Billy earns a billion dollars in a year. Billy, his wife and two kids create enough supermarket jobs to feed themselves. They also create enough pool and lawn service jobs to keep their mansion's looking nice.

    If that billion dollars earned is split more or less evenly between 20,000 ppl into $50,000 per year you get 20,000 folks who need transportation and personal computers and the like.

    Now honestly folks need the fear of starvation to keep them working. Folks also will work harder if we feel there is a probability of reward. So I AM a capitalist. Just one who believes countries with a middle class are better off.

    End taxes for corporations.

    Give tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires.

    Defund education.

    Defund Social Security.

    End Medicare.

    Stop any building on America's infrastructure.

    Bring Jesus into public schools.

    Conservatives haven't changed their message since the publication of the "Wedge Document". They are looking to create a "pure" America.
