Now we have to bust our ass to get them back. No amount of government is going to change that. Although they can make it FAR FAR harder.
And one other thing, Mark: “Entrepreneur” is the rarest of people. It’s something you can’t learn or train to do. It’s just who you are…starting something from an idea that you had while laying in bed at 3am and turning it into something real…it’s almost like having a baby! First one is the toughest and scares the crap out of you…all the others that follow…tough job but been there already. Unless you have been there, you don’t realize the highs/lows that accompany such ventures. This restaurant (see prior post) is my third baby. Just because someone has an MBA does not mean they have the cohones to start a business on their own. Ask yourself this: would you rather have a salaried 9-5 job or be your own boss, have 100x the headaches and make less with the possibility of earning more? 9-5…not me, never will be.
Great advice. This is a new world and people have to re-invent themselves. Technology is eliminating millions of jobs and THEY ARE NEVER COMING BACK. How can people not understand this. It’s a great time to go into business for yourself, figure out how to make a ton of money, hire people, then pay your taxes so the people that just can’t figure this out can survive. It’s never been easier or cheaper to start your own business, so DO IT NOW!
Ok, here my 2 cents…Its a good thought and I agree with it but people and businesses with the money to do all that won’t spend money as long as the gov’t has to take a lot to spend and create on its own. Its a catch 22, the businesses won’t spend cuz the gov’t keeps taking taxes to stimulate because the businesses won’t spend! No businessman in his right mind would go out and spend lots of money for patriotism especially when taxes payday loans in West Virginia are high. One side will have to give and in my opinion that should be the gov’t who steps aside, keeps taxes low, and allows businesses the opportunity to spend.
Wealth is the difference between overhead and profit
trip1ex: You’re absolutely wrong. There is only one time where your gain is someone else’s loss: When force is used. Why? Because only when force is used is choice removed.
That socialist BS that is at the root of this evil
In every other exchange you choose to do business with someone, they choose to do business with you. You both choose the terms that are mutually beneficial. If they are not, then you go somewhere else. Period.
Me getting the contract that you do not, is not a loss to you. It wasn’t yours in the first place. I out competed you and I got the business because I was willing to make the deal on terms agreeable to the person offering the contract in the first place.
My ability and my hard work don’t take something away from you. My accomplishment isn’t theft of you. It’s creation of wealth. It is production.
That is, the difference between what you pay for something or the parts of something and what you sell it for to someone else. That requires effort, creativity and planning. It specifically those three things that are by definition WEALTH because that is the difference between overhead and profit.
I strongly suggest you go read Capitalist Manifesto or Making of Modern Economics and understand economics because your statements demonstrate a huge ignorance of both logic and the economy.
