    I wasn't. Did you not read the part where I made clear that the economic system/enviroment implicit to my remarks is capitalism?
    In what capitalist environment be there no business owners?

    Is the answer to that question not obvious by what I wrote? What part of the following statements and linked content did you make no effort to understand?

    We have a better understanding of economics now.

    Full employment of resources is what is being advocated, solving for simple poverty is the means.

    I think that Donald SORTA understand that but in a very
    BUSINESS sort of way. Atlantic City did not produce
    anything to eat or wear or enhance the environment for the
    sake of agriculture.

    Nothing but diversion?

    Unemployment compensation should compete with social services.

    A fifteen dollar an hour minimum wage!

    More and more experts are becoming aware of the risks that autonomous android AI represents tot he job market and thus our nation.

    Robots TAKING OVER: AI to 'sink world into unemployed despair in hellish dystopia'

    Technology has rapidly thrust robots into the human economy but fears are spiralling that artificial intelligence will spark mass unemployment.

    Dr Subhash Kak – a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Oklahoma University – previously said robots could replace humans at "literally all jobs".

    But now he has exclusively revealed why this would create a world of despair, and it would render human nature meaningless and surplus to requirements.

    Kak told Daily Star Online: "The beginnings of the dystopia are already there.

    "There will be massive unemployment. People want to be useful and work provides meaning, and so the world will sink into despair.

    "Policy makers have begun to speak of a minimum guaranteed income with everyone provided food, shelter, and a smart phone, and that will not address the heart of the problem."​

    Unemployment compensation simply for being unemployed in an at-will employment State!
