The Real Job Creators
A lot of right wing ideologues oppose tax increases on Americas most wealthy by stating one thing but, that one thing doesn’t hold much truth. What is the right wing ideologues statement? That statement is “You can’t raise taxes on the rich because they are the ‘job creators’.” Excuse my language for a minute but, that statement is total and utter bull shit. Where did they get the idea that these people are the job creators? If you know any one who says wealthy people are job creators tell them to email me and explain to me how the wealthy are job creators.
See in America there is a thing called a free market economy. While Americas free market is not a totally pure free market, it is a free market none the less. Being that our economy is based upon a free market, there is one thing we absolutely cannot escape. That thing that we absolutely cannot escape is supply and demand. Supply and demand isn’t a black and white thing. There are many variables that play into a free market economy and supply and demand so the explanations I will give will be the simple basic ideas of supply and demand.
Supply is dependent on demand and it also goes the other way around. The equilibrium is the perfect balance of supply and demand. If demand is high then supply will most likely be high, thus creating a higher equilibrium. If supply is high and demand is down their will be a lower equilibrium. With that information being stated, I am now going to tell you who and what creates jobs.
If demand is high there will be more need of supply. If supply is high then we will need more people to create the products that are being demanded. If more people are making a product the action of making that product is a persons job. That being said, some people will still wonder who are the job creators. Well in a free market economy, that is based on supply and demand, people like you and I are the real job creators. Don’t believe me, look at what happens every year during Christmas and Summer time.
While wealthy business owners do play their part in creating jobs initially, after free enterprise takes action, business owners play no part in job creation. The fact that some conservative and liberal politicians are lying to us and telling us business owners need to be protected from taxes is upsetting. These politicians are pretty much calling the American people stupid and are expecting that we haven’t taken a simple economics class, which is a requirement to graduate from high school. The politicians need to stop representing big businesses and wealthy business owners and get back to representing the average American. I just turned eighteen not even a year ago and I am already sick and tired of the games politicians play. I know those of you who are older than me must be ready to ditch the whole idea of democracy after seeing it be corrupted by people like the Koch brothers. Hopefully, politicians will smarten up and get the Koch out of our government.
