35. Even if there are potential new customers...

There still has to be more production. Who is responsible for more production so these customers can buy the products that make the job creators more and more wealthy?

Unless one believes that the "creators" do all of this production by themselves, then nothing could be created without the worker. The customer is of no use to the economy if there are no products to buy.

Granted, the "job creators" can hire more people to make more products to sell to more customers so long as the customers have the means to purchase the products. Each of these is dependent on the other. The business owner is dependent on labor to make the product. The laborer is dependent upon the business owner for the job. They are all dependent on the customer buying the product, otherwise, the business fails, the worker loses his job, the customer goes without, and they all suffer. One is not superior to the other, contrary to the brainwashing we have gone thru our entire lives.

"Job Creators" is offensive. [View all] Evasporque Jul 2012 OP
