Robust Consumer Demand Creates Jobs, And Jules From Pulp Fiction Agrees
You know what I’ve had just about enough of? Pipe dreams sold to the masses by the narcissism fueled by greed and wealth. Or in other words, I’m tired of hearing the phrase “job creators” and I’m both fatigued and annoyed every time I hear someone say the wealthy create jobs. And I’m overcome by a fierce rage when I hear yet another gutless politician say we need to give more tax breaks to companies and individuals who are already hoarding large sums of cash so that maybe, just maybe out of the kindness of their gold lined hearts they might see it fit to create a job or two. But oh yeah, then reality intrudes, and I’m reminded that they aren’t going to create those jobs if there isn’t the demand to justify those positions in the first place.
