25. just pointing out where the logic fails, your excellency

As you so pointedly explain, businesses needs in this time are very different based on scale. This has been the crux of my argument in this thread, I humbly apologize if that was not clear to this point.

"A person who is sole owner of an enterprise which employs no one else is in no real sense the owner of a business, but actually a person scrounging for temporary employment, client by client, or else an employee in all but name of a larger concern he or she supplies with some article or service. They live, then, not on profit but on a wage, paid by their clients. This wage can be readily calculated by the tax documents they must file, and for purposes of my proposal would treated as any other employee's wage."


This is unfortunately an oversimplification. A number of common exceptions come readily to mind; a small farmer, creators of craft goods, or a food truck. They have no employees but are not paid personally by job or client; the business is paid for the sale of their creations, and the owner/operator takes profit distributions based on the net income of the business. This is can be highly varied from month to month or even year to year. They certainly would not be considered temporary employment or working from client to client.

I suggest reevaluating your view on this issue, as some of the detail may be lost due to the zealous disapproval of larger business. Perhaps an introductory text on economics.

I believe my point has been made. A good day to you.
