  •  Real business vs. speculation. (0+ / 0-)

    Past a certain level of prosperity, the money a business owner accumulates (not investing in the business, i.e.- new employees because there is no demand to warrant it) becomes a destructive tool. It becomes the means for speculation, which (thanks to deregulation) has become more lucrative than creating anything. It is lazy money.

    Speculators don't create jobs. It’s millions of middle class Americans with money in their pockets that creates jobs.  The actual business community, then, expands and makes money as middle men between workers and consumers.  If millions of consumers with money to spend put workers to work and at the same time make people richer, fine…but speculators becoming richer without putting more people to work is not OK.
